Vulnerability and the Corporation

Principal Investigator: Fiona De Londras

Project Outline: This project will examine the ways in which corporations both produce and experience vulnerability and the ways in which states do—or do not—respond to these vulnerabilities. Building on Prof. Martha Fineman’s emergent theory of vulnerability and the responsive state, the project will consider the relationship between corporate structures, vulnerability, and state responsiveness. It will bring together perspectives from regulation, governance, human rights law, corporate law and feminist legal theory in an innovative, trans-Atlantic academic alliance.
