Accountability and Remedy Project III: Enhancing effectiveness of non-state-based grievance mechanisms in cases of business-related human rights abuse
On 6 July 2018, the Human Rights Council adopted a resolution by consensus which welcomed the work of OHCHR on improving accountability and access to remedy for victims of business-related human rights abuse, and requested OHCHR to continue its work in this area and enter a third phase of the Accountability and Remedy Project (ARP III), specifically:
“to identify and analyse challenges, opportunities, best practices and lessons learned with regard to non-state-based grievance mechanisms that are relevant for the respect by business enterprises for human rights, . . . and to submit a report thereon to be considered by the Human Rights Council at the 44th session.” (OP 9)
OHCHR is currently working on a scoping paper that will frame how the office will proceed with its research for this new mandate. Updated information and documents related to ARP III will be posted on this webpage as they become available.
