Corporate Accountability in Transitional Justice: Insights from the Case of Argentina

Author:
Laura García Martín

Abstract:
This article examines the issue of business participation in the commission of human rights violations within the framework of transitional justice. The analysis is based on a case study: that of the transitional justice process in Argentina, generally considered a regional protagonist in the field of transitional justice. Therefore, based on the context of the last Argentine dictatorship, this article examines how the transitional justice process has addressed the participation of companies in human rights violations committed during the military regime, as well as the possible options provided by the Institutional framework of Companies and Human Rights to demand responsibility from companies. Finally, some final reflections and some suggestions to address these issues in the future are presented.
