Conference Report “Rights and Accountability: The Way Ahead for Business and Human Rights”

On 21-22 November 2011, representatives from governments, NGOs from the global North and South, companies, trade unions and academia from around 15 countries met at an Expert Conference in Berlin to discuss the role of Germany and the European Union regarding business and human rights.  The Conference was organized by MISEREOR, the European Center for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR), the FES, Germanwatch, and the German civil society networks Forum Human Rights and Corporate Accountability (CorA).

The Conference was designed to discuss policy approaches to elaborate the state duty to protect human rights against corporate abuses, with a particular focus on the perspective of those affected by misconduct by transnational corporations and their access to remedy.
