Treaty on Human Rights and TNCs

Together with committed networks and campaign groups around the world, FIAN International  is part of the ‘Treaty alliance’, an alliance that carries out and helps organize advocacy activities in support of developing a binding international instrument to address corporate human rights abuses. 

The Treaty Alliance is convinced of the need to enhance the international legal framework to protect human rights in the context of business operations. We are also mindful of the urgent need to improve access to justice, remedy and reparations for victims and to stop corporate human rights abuses. 

The enhancement of the international human rights system in relation to TNCs and other business enterprises is urgent and needed. We call on civil society organizations, social movements, affected communities and the public to actively promote locally, nationally and internationally the public debate around this process and mobilize for this treaty.
