Description: What impact do international economic inputs have on human rights in Third World nations? William Meyer examines direct investment by U.S. multinational corporations, economic and military aid, and MNC manufacturing plants and their impact on human rights at both the national and the international levels. This book illustrates that, at the national level, human rights violations are associated with U.S. MNCs in Chile, Honduras, India, Indonesia, and Mexico. MNCs have been especially guilty of violating labor rights, particularly through their reliance on sweatshops.

But at a broader international level, increased investment by MNCs tends to go along with human rights improvements in the Third World. Meyer shows that there is a broad positive relationship between direct investment by MNCs and broader political rights and improved living standards. But while economic aid is found to be associated with improved political and socioeconomic rights, military aid, by contrast, is associated with declining levels of civil rights and with lower levels of social welfare. This book will be of interest to scholars, activists, and students of human rights.
