Déclaration du groupe de travail de GANHRI "Entreprises et droits de l'homme"

Les membres du Groupe de travail "Entreprises et droits de l'homme" de l'Alliance globale des INDH, salue la publication du rapport sur l'accès à la justice et la réparation pour les victimes de violations des droits de l'homme du fait d'activités conduites par les entreprises.

The mandate and role of National Human Rights Institutions (NHRIs) in facilitating remedy, including as a State-based non-judicial mechanism, are identified explicitly in the UN Guiding Principles. NHRIs are instrumental in bridging and mediating concerns over human rights violations concerning businesses, such as, but not limited to, discrimination, labor rights, consumer rights and environmental rights violations. This also frames the relationship of NHRIs to other State-based mechanisms such as domestic courts and regional human rights courts. The bridging role of NHRIs is an important tool or mechanism by which concerns of business-related human rights violations are brought to the attention of these actors.

[...]

Keeping NHRIs independent, functional and accessible to all creates an enabling environment where NHRIs can facilitate dialogue among duty-bearers, rights-holders, business enterprises and civil society, and recommend access to justice, effective remedies and reparations for business-related human rights abuses.
