The Access to Remedy pillar of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights clarifies that “States should provide effective and appropriate non-judicial grievance mechanisms, alongside judicial mechanisms, as part of a comprehensive State-based system for the remedy of business-related human rights abuse”. Based on existing insights about the functioning of non-judicial grievance mechanisms, this panel session centres around the question: how can the EU improve the effectiveness of non-judicial grievance mechanisms in providing remedy for victims of business related human rights abuse?
This part of the conference is part of the Human Rights in Business training session.
