The Special Representative will present his final report to the Human Rights Council on 30th May 2011. The Council will ultimately decide on any follow-up mechanism. As an international group of Catholic development agencies, CIDSE has followed the work of Professor Ruggie’s team since the inception of the original mandate. Many of our partner organisations in Africa, Asia and Latin America have direct experience of the harm that can occur if companies ignore their impact on human rights.
