Summary

International law has thus far been reluctant to impose any broad obligations on the home state of a multinational corporation to regulate the company's activities overseas. Indeed, a state is not generally responsible for the wrongful acts of its nationals abroad, unless of course such acts can be attributed to it under the rules of state responsibility, and there is no general obligation on a state to prevent harmful conduct by its nationals overseas. It follows that the home state of a PMSC – that is, the state in which the company is based or incorporated – will not automatically incur international responsibility for violations committed by that PMSC overseas merely by virtue of the territorial link between the state and the company.
