Abstract
The focus of this paper is to look at recent developments in international human rights law that

hold corporations liable for human rights abuses and explore the protection provided under the Alien

Tort Statute to victims from Asia. Legal infrastructures are lacking in many Asian countries, resulting

in victims seeking other means for relief. Domestic legislation can be used to regulate and monitor

corporate human rights violations, but multilateral efforts that create measures to enforce corporate

accountability should also be considered to increase protection of human rights.
