The Third Pillar: Access to Judicial Remedy for Human Rights Violations by Transnational Business

Monday, December 2nd, 2013

States are failing in their obligation to ensure access to effective judicial remedies to victims of human rights violations by businesses operating outside their territory.  Two years from the universal endorsement of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, there is more work to be done. This report by CORE, European Coalition for Corporate Justice and International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR) identifies and analyses the barriers to remedy in the United States, Canada, and Europe, setting out detailed recommendations for the actions States should take to address the issue. An unofficial Chinese translation of the report is also available: 第三大支柱: 让跨国公司侵犯人权行为的受害者获得司法救济.
