Misereor together with the Global Policy Forum and Bread for the World have published a working document highlighting corporate influence on the Business and Human Rights agenda of the United Nations. (June 2014).
Efforts to create an international legally binding instrument to hold transnational corporations (TNCs) accountable for human rights abuses have recently gained new momentum.
The working paper ends with remarks on what could be done to counteract and reverse corporate influence on the UN human rights agenda. This constitutes an indispensable prerequisite for progress towards effective legally binding instruments on business and human rights that can produce real improvements in the lives of affected individuals and communities.
