This thesis considers the human rights obligations of states and firms in a capitalist society through an economic analysis of law. The UDHR, the founding document of the International Bill of Human Rights, is a core piece of the international human rights regime. The existence of a globally recognized definition of human rights should eliminate the potential for governance gaps. I examine why this is not the case in practice.
