We fight corruption and enhance remedies.
The global reach and power of multinational corporations has increased in recent years. Yet, the conditions under which these businesses may be held liable for human rights abuses have not aligned with this evolution. As a result, victims of business-related human rights harms are often unable to obtain access to effective remedy.
There are no rights without remedy. We therefore push governments to ensure that they fulfill their duty to protect human rights by ensuring that victims have access to effective remedies, including judicial and non-judicial, for human rights abuses that occur at home and abroad.
As a significant barrier is access to remedy, our work has a specific focus on addressing and combatting corruption.
