Access to Remedy Briefing
September 16, 2015 @ 2:30 pm - 4:30 pm
In November 2014, the OHCHR launched an initiative “to make domestic legal responses fairer and more effective for victims of business-related human rights abuses, particularly in the most severe cases.” The initiative, called the Accountability and Remedy Project, will deliver credible and concrete recommendations and guidance to States to enable more effective implementation of the Access to Remedy pillar of the UN Guiding Principles.
The Accountability and Remedy Project will run until June 2016. At that point, OHCHR will report the outputs and recommendations from the initiative to the United Nations Human Rights Council. To gather input and recommendations from stakeholders for this project, OHCHR has launched a global online consultation, which runs until August 1, 2015.
During the briefing on September 16, Lene Wendland and Ragnhild Handagard from OHCHR will present initial findings of the global online consultation and discuss with participants actions and possible follow-up.
