[PDF] Annual Briefing - Corporate Legal Accountability

Author: Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, Published on: 20 June 2012

This briefing provides an overview of corporate legal accountability for human rights, summarising trends and developments in this field. The goal is to help a wide audience understand what is happening in different parts of the world. This briefing flags some major issues and cases, but it is not a comprehensive overview. Further information is available on Business & Human Rights Resource Centre’s Corporate Legal Accountability Portal – an online hub that provides accessible, up-to-date case profiles on over 70 lawsuits in all parts of the world. The profiles link to the arguments from both sides of cases wherever available, as well as articles and commentaries. The portal is a resource for lawyers and non-lawyers – for victims, advocates, NGOs, business people and others.
