Volume 61 Issue 11 (Dec 2009)

Abstract: The worst corporate calamity that occurred in Bhopal, India, in the Union Carbide plant, in which thousands lost their lives and an equal number had serious after effects, due to leakage of 40 tons of highly poisonous methyl isocyanate gas, is presented. The legal implications are discussed and it is mentioned that the protection and promotion of human rights are not optional extras in the political economy and respect for human rights should be the ultimate foundation for economic globalisation.
