Briefing Paper On The Zero Draft UNPACKING ARGUMENTS AGAINST A TREATY

Art.-Nr.: 2019-15

Year of publication: 2019

On 26 June 2014 the UN Human Rights Commission approved a resolution to form a working group to elaborate a legally binding instrument to regulate the activities of transnational  corporations  and  other  companies  with  regard to  compliance  with  human  rights  standards  (‘Treaty Process’). The working group has met four times since then. In July 2018 the Ecuadorian chair submitted a first draft treaty (Zero Draft) which was debated at the fourth meeting  of  the  UN  working  group  in  October  2018.
The states were invited to comment on this draft until end-February 2019. The present briefing paper discusses objections raised in political debates to the overall process or to contents of the Zero Draft and formulates proposed solutions.
