Intl. Commission of Jurists

[PDF] Access to Justice: Human Rights Abuses Involving Corporations [India]

This report aims to critically examine legal remedies, both judicial and non-judicial, available under Indian law to victims of human rights abuses by companies. There are three main objectives of this examination: (i) to assess the efficacy of the existing regulatory framework; (ii) to identify major obstacles that victims experience in holding companies accountable for breaching their human rights obligations; and (iii) to outline recommendations that should help in overcoming these obstacles.
