Summary
"This edited volume with a distinguished and diverse group of contributors uses Latin America, and Guatemala in particular, as a case study to examine broad gobal themes arising from development practices in emerging economies. It offers important lessons to investors and policy makers on strategies to improve distributional justice and respect for the rule of law, including human rights and environmental norms. The book examines such global themes as climate change, extractive industries, labor regimes, and forced migration, all of which have transborder implications and across-border commonalities. Moving beyond identifying problems, the contributors focus on creative solutions to help developing nations and corporations engage in more sustainable business practices."--Back cover
