Week of Peoples Mobilisation for a a UN Binding Treaty for Transnational Corporations on Human Rights
Oct 12 – Oct 19 all-day

“In June 2014, the Human Rights Council finally adopted the resolution 26/9 on the elaboration of an International legally binding instrument on transnational corporations (TNCs) and other business enterprises with respect to human rights. This was a historic achievement after decades of discussions and failed attempts within the United Nations. Such a legally binding Instrument is essential for two dimensions of the Global Campaign’s work: to end corporate impunity, and address the systemic power of transnational corporations which has reached unprecedented impacts on the daily lives of affected communities.

The Global Campaign will convene a Week of Peoples Mobilisation at the occasion of the 5th Session of the OEIGWG in Geneva from 12 to 19 October (more details coming soon).”
