New video: Human rights in times of crises - Corporate power, the role of law and human rights

On 2 June 2021, Katharina Pistor (author, Columbia Law School) spoke with Guillermo Torres (lawyer, ProDESC), Johan Horst (LSI Berlin), and Miriam Saage-Maaß (ECCHR program director Business and Human Rights) about how corporate power and law are intertwined.

Law not only organizes and secures economic profits, it is a crucial factor in creating wealth. The guests explore how economic and financial law are important factors in creating corporate power, and our legal and political options to restrict this dynamic of growing corporate wealth and power. Can human rights, especially economic and social rights, play a role in insuring our societies become more equitable?
