First Workshop on Righting Remedy

On 9 September 2015 the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR) and the Centre for Research on Multinational Corporations (SOMO) convened a one day workshop in Washington DC. The workshop brought together practitioners and experts using judicial and non-judicial mechanisms to discuss shared obstacles, exchange lessons learned, determine what remedies are possible and appropriate using the various existing mechanisms, explore how research in the two areas can be combined, and to co-strategize around breaking down current barriers.

This meeting was the first of a series of workshops that will allow for case comparisons, cross-fertilization of knowledge and research, a discussion of what remedies are possible and appropriate through existing mechanisms, thinking around how research tasks can be combined for greater efficiency and collaboration going forward, and a strategy session around how to break down current barriers.
