Submission to the United Nations’ Openended Intergovernmental Working Group on Transnational Corporations and Other Business Enterprises with Respect to Human Rights (IGWG)
ESCR-Net’s Corporate Accountability Working Group (CAWG) has made a submission jointly calling upon the United Nations’ Open-ended Intergovernmental Working Group on Transnational Corporations and Other Business Enterprises with Respect to Human Rights (IGWG) to include many priorities of its membership into the content of the forthcoming Treaty to address corporate-related human rights abuses.
The submission is a reflection of CSOs’ priorities that emerged over the course of the past two years. In this time, CAWG led a worldwide consultation with over 150 CSOs, including in-person consultations with our members and partners in Asia-Pacific, Africa and Latin America, and online consultations with CSOs from all regions, many who deal first-hand with the impacts of transnational corporations and other business enterprises (‘TNC-OBE’).
