John Ruggie, UN Special Representative on business & human rights

[PDF] SRSG’s Statement on Open Letter from Mr. Richard Meeran

I am extremely grateful to Richard Meeran for sharing his reflections on the opportunities for, and limits of, holding multinational companies to account legally in the “home” states of their parent corporations...Providing guidance on the “remedy” part of the [“protect, respect, and remedy” policy framework] requires further in‐depth thinking and consultations, about judicial and non‐judicial mechanisms...The mandate is...conducting work on judicial remedies, focused on impediments to access. Mr. Meeran’s contribution is particularly relevant in that connection.

Part of the following timelines
