"International human rights as an informative tool for enforcing standards on Transnational Corporations under the Post Kiobel Alien Tort Statute".
Jaime is currently conducting doctoral research into how international human rights can regulate multinational corporations via the US Alien Tort Statute up to and after the pending US Supreme Court case of Kiobel.
