Join our upcoming webinar Human Rights and Corporate Accountability. Register here.
When: 12 May 2016, 2 to 3 p.m. (CET)
Speaker: María Muñoz Maraver, Director of WILPF’s Human Rights Programme
TTIP and WTO agreements provide a comfortable legal framework for Corporations to operate across countries. However, these norms do not guarantee accountability for corporations when they violate human rights.
Corporations may indeed violate human rights. In contexts of instability or armed conflict, the consequences are further exacerbated. Many corporations use military means and private military and security companies to repress the population and to silence human rights and environmental defenders.
To ensure accountability and protect human rights, we need to build an International Solidarity and work within the Treaty Alliance of which WILPF is a member.
Why should WILPFers engage? What can members do? How can we challenge corporate power? María Muñoz Maraver will answer your questions on the topic of corporate accountability.
