Practitioners’ guide on Extra-Territorial Obligations in the context of Corporate Human Rights Violations

Practitioners’ Guide on Extra-Territorial Obligations (ETOs) in the context of Corporate Human Rights Violations

The International Network for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ESCR-Net) Corporate Accountability Working Group (CAWG) has published a new resource entitled “Global Economy, Global Rights – A Practitioners’ Guide for interpreting human rights obligations in the global economy” to support the interpretation and application of ETOs in the context of corporate human rights abuses.  Launched at a gathering of outgoing and incoming UN Special Procedure Mandate Holders in Geneva, the resource is designed to support the work of human rights practitioners; in particular UN special procedures mandate holders, treaty bodies and other agencies. It synthesizes and provides an analysis of the UN treaty body pronouncements – concluding observations and general comments – in relation to corporate human rights violations.

Several members of the Corporate Accountability Working Group (CAWG) of the International Network for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights (ESCR-Net), with significant experience in advocating for application of ETOs in situations of corporate human rights violations around the world, were involved in the development of this publication. In particular, the CAWG would like to thank the following members for their commitment and contribution to this publication:

Global Initiative for Economic, Social and Cultural Rights

Inclusive Development International

Center for International Environmental Law

Justica Global – Brasil
