Meeting between ELI BHR Team Members and the European Ombudsman’s Principal Adviser on Charter Compliance


On 21 April 2022, Diana Wallis, Project Co-Reporter of the ELI project on Business and Human Rights (BHR), and Duncan Fairgrieve, Project Team member of the ELI project, met Marta Hirsch-Ziembińska, the European Ombudsman's Principal Adviser on Charter Compliance.

The meeting served as an opportunity to discuss the new ELI report on Business and Human Rights: Access to Justice and Effective Remedies. Participants discussed in particular the report’s recommendations on additional pathways for redress for victims of human rights abuses by businesses, such as the ELI proposal to establish a European Ombuds Institution for Corporate Responsibility.

Participants were joined by Katja Kolman from the ELI Secretariat.
