Mapping research and initiatives on access to remedy and business & human rights
The 2017 UN Forum on Business & Human Rights (27-29 November) will have a major focus on the issue of access to remedy for business-related human rights impacts – the third pillar of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. In order to inform preparations, the Forum Secretariat is doing a mapping of ongoing research and projects linked to this topic. All stakeholders are encouraged to submit brief information about ongoing or planned research and projects for 2017-18 related to the issue of access to remedy in the context of business and human rights. The information should be submitted via this online form. Links to recently concluded research and reports are welcome as well.

Areas of interest include research and projects related to:
- State-based judicial mechanisms (both civil and criminal)
- State-based non-judicial mechanisms (NHRIs, national contact points, ombudsman offices, labour inspection etc.)
- Company-based/operational-level grievance mechanisms
- Grievance mechanisms administered by industry associations and multi-stakeholder initiatives
- Grievance mechanisms administered by international financial and development institutions
- Regional and international judicial mechanisms that may handle business-related human rights complaints
- Community-led/based grievance mechanisms

This is not an exhaustive list. Information about research and projects in related fields is also welcome. Information may also be submitted on an ongoing basis.

The submitted information may be compiled and posted on the Forum web page in due course in order to provide an overview of ongoing work to a wider range of stakeholders. More information about the 2017 Forum and the process of submitting session proposals will be made available during March 2017.

The Forum is guided by the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights and organized by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR).
