Strengthening Non-Judicial Mechanisms
Ensuring that victims of corporate human rights abuses can access effective, non-judicial remedies
Non-judicial mechanisms, remedy processes which occur outside of the courts, are an important means by which victims of human rights abuses committed by corporations may be able to receive justice. We work with governments, international institutions, and civil society to strengthen the non-judicial remedies available to victims of corporate human rights violations.
