This article aims to track and evaluate evolving views about the human rights obligations of corporations. It investigates whether corporations have direct, morally grounded human rights obligations and examines the character and scope of those obligations. It evaluates three models that dominate contemporary debates regarding our understanding of the human rights obligations of corporations and proposes a hybrid model that allocates human rights responsibilities to business organizations based upon the contexts in which a business is active.

Keywords: corporations; human rights obligations; business; corporate responsibilities; moral grounds
