The ELI-FRA Business and Human Rights Project Team Meeting


The ELI-FRA Project on Business and Human Rights: Access to Justice and Effective Remedies Project Team, met for a second time this year on 3 June in Vienna at the ELI Secretariat to discuss the project’s status and recent developments.

The aim of the meeting was to discuss three main points: to further develop the focus or the so-called ‘operative’ part of the project; to finalise the composition of the Advisory Committee; and to work on the project’s timeline for the coming months. As with previous Project Team meetings, Team members also examined recent policy developments at EU and global levels in the field of Business and Human Rights. Jonas Grimheden, one of the Project Reporters, gave an update of the first and second rounds of research conducted by the FRA. In the afternoon session, Team Members focused on identifying the next steps to be taken and divide the workload amongst themselves.  

The core Team intends to meet again in autumn to advance their work, with a view to the final project being approved in February 2020.
