Holding Companies Accountable - Lessons from transnational human rights litigation, ECCHR, Brot für die Welt and MISEREOR booklet, November 2014

Encouraged by prominent human rights organizations in the Global South, Brot für die Welt, the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) and MISEREOR have joined forces in a project to assist local actors in taking action against transnational companies who are involved in or profit from human rights violations. Close to 50 individual cases of human rights violations committed by companies from all over the world were comprehensively analyzed.  On this basis, suggestions for German law reform are made so that those affected by human rights violations can sue companies in Germany.
