Special Issue "Law and Sustainability in Global Value Chains"
A special issue of Sustainability (ISSN 2071-1050).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: closed (30 September 2018)
This Special Issue includes selected studies that examine the question of how can we achieve sustainability within global value chains with the help of legal tools. It gathers articles contributing to our understanding of the interaction of law and global value chains, due diligence regulation and the role of contracts and contract law in this area. These three themes are in the focus of the international symposium 'Law and sustainability in global value chains: Due diligence and contracts in focus’ to be held at Aarhus University, in April, 2018. The Special Issue presents contributions from the above-mentioned symposium as well as it invites other submissions, which investigate the role of law in global value chains aiming to secure a sound social foundation for people everywhere now and in the future while staying within planetary boundaries.
