ELI-FRA Business and Human Rights Project Team Meeting


On 22 November 2019, the core Team met for a third time this year at ELI’s premises in Vienna to discuss developments and how to proceed following the project’s approval.

Since the official approval of the project on 26 September by the ELI Council, the Team is now ready to progress. Project Team members discussed the various steps to be taken leading to the final vote on the project in September 2020. Other points on the agenda included examining the recent policy developments at EU and global levels in the area of Business and Human Rights; the revised project timeline; upcoming events; the distribution of tasks among Team members and the structure of the final output. Participants had submitted some input ahead of the meeting, which served as a basis for fruitful discussions and paved the way forward.


The next meeting is envisaged for April 2020.
