Contribution for their second session, Geneva, 24 – 28 October 2016
This submission by CIDSE, Friends of the Earth Europe, Brot für die Welt, SOMO and IBFAN focuses on three core elements of a future treaty:
1. Adequate access to remedy
2. Effective enforcement mechanisms
3. The Treaty and the trade and investment regime
The analysis and proposals are based on a seminar with legal experts, advocates of affected communities and European NGOs within the Treaty Alliance, where different options were presented and discussed. The views expressed in this submission are solely those of the NGOs who are filing this submission.
