How to improve effectiveness of non-judicial grievance mechanisms - Access Facility reports back on an expert meeting
As an implementing partner of the United Nations Working Group on Business and Human Rights (UNWG) in a project on “Building Capacity to Enhance Access to Remedy in the Domain of Business and Human Rights”, Access Facility organised an expert meeting in April 2014. The aim of the meeting was to find practical solutions to improve the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles’ 31 regarding the effectiveness criteria for non-judicial grievance mechanisms to enhance access to remedy.
Access Facility released the expert meeting report in July 2014. It reflects the discussion and suggestions that were made on the challenges and needs to provide access to effective remedy for victims of human rights abuses by companies. The report will be submitted to the UNWG.
