Call for input: Access to Remedy in Cases of Business-Related Human Rights Abuse: An Interpretive Guide (deadline: 9 August)
In furtherance of its work on access to remedy (A2R), OHCHR will be producing an interpretive guide on the third pillar of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). The guide will provide additional background explanation to the Guiding Principles on access to remedy to support a fuller understanding of their meaning and intent.
In 2012, OHCHR published a document unpacking the second pillar: The Corporate Responsibility to Respect Human Rights: An Interpretive Guide (https://www.ohchr.org/Documents/Issues/Business/RtRInterpretativeGuide.pdf). The A2R interpretive guide will follow a similar format as the 2012 guide: it will provide (1) definitions of key concepts relating to access to remedy, and (2) answers to a series of questions relating to each principle in the third pillar that will help unpack its meaning.
We would greatly appreciate your input on which questions to be addressing in the A2R interpretive guide. This form provides an opportunity to submit questions on each principle of the third pillar. Please feel free to submit a question about any aspect of UNGPs 25 - 31 that will help unpack what these principles mean and/or will clear up any misconceptions about these principles. No question is too basic!
DEADLINE FOR SUBMISSION: Monday, 9 August 2021
For a sense of the types of questions addressed in our 2012 interpretive guide, a list of the questions from that guide may be found at the bottom of this form.
