Complementarity between the UNGPs & a binding UN Instrument
01 September 2016

Report of session organised by SOMO, CIDSE, Friends of the Earth Europe and TNI at the Dutch EU Presidency Conference “EU Roadmap to Business and Human Rights” (Amsterdam, 11 May 2016) (see pp. 31-33)

This session brought together different perspectives to consider how an international treaty could potentially help to address recognised gaps in current frameworks, particularly in relation to the EU priorities of access to justice and protection of human rights defenders in the UN context, and to discuss prospects for the UN process and how Europe might contribute.
