Submission: UN open-ended intergovernmental working group on transnational corporations & human rights


Corporate Accountability International has Special Consultative Status with the United Nations Economic and Social Council (ECOSOC), is in official relations with the World Health Organization (WHO), and is an official observer to the WHO Framework Convention on Tobacco Control (FCTC).  Corporate Accountability International is also a member of the Treaty Alliance and of the Global Campaign to Reclaim Peoples Sovereignty, Dismantle Corporate Power and Stop Impunity.  Since the adoption of Resolution 26/9, we have been following the developments and work of the Open-ended Intergovernmental Working Group on Transnational Corporations and Other Business Enterprises with Respect to Human Rights (OEIWG) and applaud the efforts of the Human Rights Council to protect people from the human rights abuses of transnational corporations through a legally binding instrument (the Treaty).

In representation of our hundreds of thousands of members, volunteers, and activists, we call upon the OEIWG and the member States of the United Nations Human Rights Council to include the elements and recommendations contained in this document in any draft materials developed by the OEIWG or member States in outlining the Treaty, in future negotiations, and in the Treaty itself.
