"Call for nominations to serve as legal experts for OEIGWG on TNCs and OBEs" - Deadline: 14 June 2024

In one of the recommendations of the Chair-Rapporteur of the 9th session of the open-ended intergovernmental working group on transnational corporations and other business enterprises with respect to human rights (OEIGWG on TNCs and OBEs), adopted by consensus at the end of that session, the Chair-Rapporteur recommended that the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) provide suggestions for legal experts to assist with intersessional, interregional thematic consultations to discuss the draft legally binding instrument (A/HRC/55/59, para 31(e)).

Therefore, and on behalf of the Chair-Rapporteur, OHCHR is hereby issuing a call for nominations of such legal experts to serve in their personal capacity...

Nominated experts should have relevant expertise and established competence related to business and human rights and the issues covered by the draft legally binding instrument...[T]he legal experts should represent different legal systems and their selection should aim at geographical and gender balance. As no financial resources are available for interpretation, the intersessional consultations will take place in English and the legal experts are therefore required to be fluent in English.

...[P]lease submit...nominations through this...by 14 June...
