Report on access to remedies in the UK for victims of corporate human rights abuses

Survey of the provision in the United Kingdom of access to remedies for victims of  human rights harms involving business enterprises", 17 Jul 2015

The objective of this report is to provide an analysis of the current State-based judicial and non-judicial mechanisms available in the United Kingdom to enable access to a remedy for victims of human rights abuses by business enterprises, whether the abuses occur in the UK or overseas. In identifying the remedies available, and the legislative and institutional framework enabling them, consideration is given to the barriers to accessing remedies. The overall aim of the report is to inform the review process of the UK’s National Action Plan on Business and Human Rights
