This lecture will explore the role that empathy – essentially, putting one’s self in the shoes of others – might play in the resolution of human rights claims. Particular attention will be paid to the approach of the European Court of Human Rights in its case law concerning bans on forms of religious dress, in particular the Islamic veil. The protection provided by the European Court to those people subject to such bans (in states such as France, Belgium and Turkey) has been weak.

While the notion of corporate social responsibility (CSR) has now begun to feature in company law in China, the prospect of achieving it through regulation has been criticised either for being fundamentally flawed or for being mere window-dressing in the domain of corporate law.Professor Zhao proposes a new concept of corporate social accountability (CSA or gongsi shehui wenze zhi) which is capable of sharpening the regulatory rigidity of CSR. The lecture considers the common nature, scope and trajectory of CSA and board accountability (the wenze system in China) and explores how CSR might be more appropriately and effectively applied in corporate law.
