The internationalization of production and the shift from vertical integration to contractual links are presenting courts with new challenges when courts are asked to redress violations that occur throughout the chain. In the pursue of global governance through law and corporate accountability, the fact that slavery, forced labor, violations of jus cogens and environmental disasters take place beyond borders already poses concerns. When the same events are realized by third party contractors that only have a contractual obligation and that may operate several tiers away from the lead firm, the framework appears even more intricated.
