The CNB and the ABA organize a Conference on International Corporate Liability in Conflict Zones on March 21, 2013, in Paris

Le CNB et l'ABA organisent le 21 mars 2013 à Paris un colloque sur la responsabilité des entreprises engagées dans les zones de conflit


Multinationals have strong powers to influence the economic and social fabric of fragile countries or those in conflict. Some of them sometimes provide logistical or financial support to military dictatorships or to regimes that do not respect human rights. While for a long time the norm has been to let them do this with impunity, the number of cases against companies having made themselves accomplices to violations of this kind is growing.

Therefore the National Bar Council has decided to organize, jointly with the American Bar Association (ABA), a conference on the topic of the criminal liability of corporations in areas of conflict, on 21 March 2013 in Paris.

The aim is to help stimulate global awareness of these matters, and to sensitize both lawyers to their duty to provide advice, and the companies to the criminal risks they are running if they engage in this type of activity.
