Alternative Legal Solutions to International Human Rights Violations

 In a world that resists accountability, international human rights attorneys encounter many obstacles when seeking justice for their clients. This webinar showcased several attorneys who have found novel ways to surmount these obstacles. Our hope is that they inspire you to do the same.

The topics discussed include:

  • Creative ways to address corporate liability for human rights violations;
  • Non-judicial grievance mechanisms;
  • The French duty of vigilance law for corporations doing business outside of France;
  • Child trafficking initiatives in supply chains;
  • Bringing accountability to local sites; and 
  • Representing victims in international courts.
