Activists Launch the Week of Mobilisation Against Corporate Impunity

Kind of Resource: 
Initiative
Countries: 
Switzerland

As this week marks the start of the negotiations of a treaty on transnational corporations (TNCs) and human rights, we are working with a number of other organisations to call on governments to take an active part in the negotiations and put and end to corporate impunity.

A treaty would serve to hold TNCs accountable for their violations of human rights, and fill the legal gaps in which they now operate with impunity. However, a number of States are still against the negotiations and are threatening not to attend the meetings.

We have also created petitions to call on governments to take positive action during the negotiations. Sign our petitions now!
