Regional Workshop on Business & Human Rights - Session 5

Session 5: Access to Effective Remedies Exploring Gaps and Solutions


Key takeaways: 

  • NAPs only work if the government supports it. That being said, governments, corporations and the community need to work together to see these plans succeed.
  • National institutions are supposed to have a key role in the implementation of NAPs. But is there any conflict of interest if they too are involved in the drafting of the plans?
  • There should be processes to monitor non-judicial grievance mechanisms to ensure that corporations uphold their responsibility to the well-being of both internal and external stakeholders.
