This paper examines theoretical and practical considerations on holding corporations accountable for past human rights abuses, focusing on the three legal regimes that have been used to this end so far, namely, domestic criminal law, the civil law of remedies and international human rights law. It then examines the challenges that addressing corporate accountability in transitional justice presents to the emerging framework of business and human rights and, having set the international framework, it explores how corporate accountability can be addressed within the existing transitional justice mechanisms.
