Scheper, Christian / Zajak, Sabrina

Published in: Mullen, Matthew et al. (eds.): Navigating a New Era of Business and Human Rights

Scheper and Zajak emphasize the critical role of corporate transparency politics. While transparency norms are understandably seen as important, it is the politics of information and knowledge that connects companies to human rights improvements or violations. At every level of global production networks transparency politics are power-laden and contested. Once we acknowledge them as political processes, the question is how to navigate transparency politics in a way that enables public regulators and rights-holders to shape and control them.
