State Responsibilities to Regulate and Adjudicate Corporate Activities under the European Convention on Human Rights

Submission to the Special Representative of the United Nations Secretary-General (SRSG) on [business & human rights]...The present submission analyses States’ Parties obligations to regulate and adjudicate corporate activities under the European Convention for the Protection of Human Rights and Fundamental Freedoms (ECHR)…[I]ssues of human rights, business, and extraterritoriality have received increasing attention on the part of the European Court of Human Rights (ECtHR) and the Council of Europe (CoE)…[The] Court has decided a significant number of cases involving media corporations (defamation; freedom of expression), private banks…, private hospitals and schools, trade unions…and corporate human rights violations in the environmental sphere…As regards extraterritoriality, the ECtHR’s 2001 decision in Banković and subsequent case-law have stimulated a lively debate on the extraterritorial dimension of State obligations under the ECHR that concerns acts performed, and producing effects, outside the State’s territory.
