We consider the future of ATS claims and other avenues for human rights litigation more broadly U. The Introduction explains why and how the ATS emerged as a tool for human rights advancement and a focal point for corporate accountability issues, providing an overview of the last 30 years of ATS litigation.
We also look at how the Obama Administration reversed course and in fact argued against the ATS and the victims of human rights abuses before the Court and we raise the question of whether this reflects a broader trend by the administration backtracking on its early commitments to corporate accountability and human rights.
Chapter Two then takes a step back and presents a history of the intent of the statute, and how that intent has been translated in modern times, allowing the survivors of gross international human rights and corporate actors responsible for, or complicit in, the abuses. Chapter Three looks at the faces behind the cases, presenting the stories of the victims of corporate human rights abuses, including those that have found some measure of justice through ATS cases, those to case studies presented here demonstrate the breadth of situations in which the ATS has been invoked, and the ways in which the ATS has been employed as a tool in seeking accountability for human rights violations.
Chapter Four debunks the principal myths espoused by the opponents of the ATS.
It lays out the main arguments made against the ATS, focusing particularly on the arguments frequently raised by the corporate lobby. Chapter Five makes the case for the importance and value of the ATS in the protection and defense of international human rights.
It lays to the survivors of human rights violations and to the United States as a whole as a matter of public policy.
