This chapter examines the legal implications arising from calls for ‘international corporate social responsibility’. It begins with a brief overview of the reasons why investor responsibilities have become a major strand in the debates on the future development of international investment law. It then considers what is meant by the term ‘international corporate social responsibility’ (ICSR). Thirdly, the major legal developments to date in the field of standard setting for corporate responsibilities are considered, followed by a brief overview of monitoring and enforcement issues. The chapter concludes by considering the implications of these developments for the evolution of international investment agreements (IIAs).
