Corporate Legal Accountability

This global resource hub on corporate legal accountability provides information, analysis and tools to help advocates end corporate impunity for human rights abuses.

Welcome to the Corporate Legal Accountablity Portal! We’re here to equip you with pertinent resources to advance corporate legal accountability and drive forward global debate on access to justice and remedy for victims of corporate human rights abuse.

On this portal you will find latest legal news, our dedicated publications and blog series, key resources for lawyers and analysis of seminal lawsuits in the field of corporate legal accountability for human rights abuses. Our Case Profiles provide examples and summaries of lawsuits brought against companies to redress human rights abuses and those brought by companies against human rights defenders to silence and harass them (SLAPPs). For more information about our work, see our Programme Information.
