UN Business & Human Rights: CIDSE note 4 July 2014

Business and Human Rights: Engaging new action at international and national levels, CIDSE note, 4 July 2014 (Available in EN – ES – FR)

On 26 June 2014, the UN Human Rights Council adopted by majority vote a resolution that will establish a new inter-governmental working group with the mandate to elaborate an international legally binding instrument to regulate, in international human rights law, the activities of transnational corporations and other business enterprises. For organizations working with communities and individuals currently suffering abuses and violations of their human rights as a result of business activity, this is a very important development. A thoughtfully developed international legally binding instrument would represent an important additional tool to support their struggles and help them to press national governments to ensure that businesses respect human rights.
