dc.description.abstractThe Torture Victim Protection Act (TVPA) was passed by Congress to provide a modern cause of action for victims of torture around the world. The TVPA allows victims anywhere to bring suit in the Untied States for torture committed abroad by foreign nationals. Currently, there is a split in the circuits over whether the TVPA can be used to hold corporations liable for use of torture. This Comment takes the position that the TVPA can and should be applied to corporations in order to be consistent with the Act’s legislative history and to fill dangerous gaps in governance over multinational corporations.en_US
