This Article is concerned with transnational corporations (TNCs) embryonic duty to respect international human rights law (IHRL). It assesses how TNCs duty to respect IHRL is progressively emerging in the practice of the United Nations (U.N.) and how that practice may foster and reflect the emergence of an international law obligation. It also reviews, although briefly, the main obstacles in the path of enforcing that obligation at the international and national levels.
