Context

« From energy to food to electronics, European companies are failing to prevent appalling human rights abuses and environmental harm perpetrated overseas by their subsidiaries, suppliers and  subcontractors. A new report by ECCJ argues that the EU must make it easier to enforce corporate due diligence rules and give affected people an avenue for judicial remedy.
The  report looks at 22 major recent civil cases against EU companies, and  identifies serious and systemic barriers to justice preventing victims  of business-related abuses from accessing judicial remedy.»[2]
