Abstract

Multinational corporations are facing difficult choices in Myanmar after the military coup on 1 February. Anna Triponel and Paul R. Williams argue that companies must act boldly as a collective; failure to do so will be detrimental to their bottom line in the longer term. Corporations will be in the uncomfortable position of profiting during a time of collective political and human misery. The authors argue that, as companies decide to do business in a context such as this, they become part of the panoply of international actors and institutions that have a responsibility to seek to enhance human rights and rule-of-law standards.
