Abstract

186 Book Reviews The degree to which the Guiding Principles shape formal systems of pro- tection and accountability in the future will be the true test of Ruggie’s mandate. One problem that Just Business does not cover, in part because it is often thought to be beyond the scope of the business and human rights debate, is the degree to which revenue streams from business operations (either by funding oppressive governments or by diverting funds from cash- strapped governments) affect the realization of human rights. Hopefully, other norm entrepreneurs will learn from Ruggie’s approach to tackle this and other problems in global governance. Reviewed by Scott Wisor Comparative Regionalism: Economics and Security.
