About this Event

Session 1: The State of the Corporation and Corporate Law

Presented by CIGI and HRREC

This four part virtual panel series is presented by the Centre for International Governance Innovation in collaboration with the Human Rights Research and Education Centre (HRREC) of the University of Ottawa. It celebrates the publication of CIGI’s newest book, Corporate Citizen: New Perspectives on the Globalized Rule of Law, which explores the legal frameworks and standards of conduct for multinational corporations.

This session provides an update on the role of the multinational corporation as a key engine of the economy and the state of the law on the multinational corporation. Expert panelists will discuss the increased intervention in the post-COVID world of governments in the economy, concerns about working conditions, protection of national supply chains for essentials, the shift to virtual work, the stresses on some sectors, etc. They will consider how government and industry action in the coming months to address socio-economic recovery from COVID-19 could reshape the corporation.
