Fit for Purpose? A review of the UK National Contact Point (NCP) for the Organisation for Economic Cooperation and Development Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises 2008Tuesday, November 25th, 2008

This resulted in significant reforms to the NCP procedures. However, the findings in this report by Rights & Accountability in Development (RAID) in association with CORE and The Trades Union Congress (TUC), indicated that significant problems remained.
