The Alien Tort Statute was never the reliable basis for deterring corporate overseas rights violations that its defenders imagined or hoped. That distinction rightly belongs to the Foreign Corrupt Practices Act, an anti-bribery statute that rests on undisputed principles of corporate liability, contains a clear congressional statement of extraterritorial application, and routinely collects penalties from multinational corporate defendants. Scholars have not associated the FCPA with the human rights agenda, owing principally to an impoverished understanding of rights theory. But freedom from corruption can and should be understood as a human right, one that is as old as social contract theory but new to federal and international law. With specific amendments - one modeled after environmental law and the other after intellectual property - the FCPA can become a more powerful statutory tool for deterring overseas corporate rights violations than the ATS ever was or will be. The principle of corporate liability for overseas human rights violations thus must lose its life to find it: dying in the ATS, it can be reborn in the FCPA.
