Abstract

Corporate social responsibility is not understood as a legal concept in Mexico; nevertheless, the practice of CSR is expanded in the private sector, especially understood as a corporate contribution for the betterment of society. A different focus that has started to appear recently in the country has been that of business and human rights, which involves labour and environmental aspects, and which is gradually consolidating into the public debate. However, legal and judicial practice shows that links between CSR and private international law (or business and human rights and private international law) are increasingly appearing in Mexico. In addition, the Mexican legal framework foresees interesting aspects that would be useful to address transnational judicial disputes, including in relation to choice of forum and choice of law. This chapter provides a glimpse into the legal framework that regulates these elements in Mexico, as well as examples of case law that have recently addressed business and human rights, including disputes with a transnational perspective.
