Allen & Overy's Human Rights Working Group

[PDF] The Business and Human Rights Review, Spring 2013, Issue 2

[Foreword by Justice Richard Goldstone:] The Business and Human Rights Review provides an important and timely interdisciplinary forum for lawyers and members of the business community to discuss the growing relationship between corporations, both domestic and transnational, and the protection of the human rights of people impacted by commercial activities...The activities of transnational corporations have grown exponentially in recent years...The United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights…acknowledges the growing significance of corporations on the global economy by encouraging businesses to respect human rights and provide access to remedies for human rights impacts…These developments bring with them new challenges...[N]one of these challenges is more important to resolve than the provision of accessible courts and tribunals with jurisdiction to consider and enforce appropriate remedies for human rights violations...[Refers to SKF, Atlas Copco, Ericsson, H&M, IKEA, Millicom, National Australia Bank]
