The UN Special Rapporteur on the Right to Development presented his report on his visit to Switzerland at the 45th session of the Human Rights Council. CETIM intervened during the debate that followed this presentation to express its concerns.
CETIM and its partners express their concerns about the new version of the treaty in the framework of the UN Intergovernmental Working Group in charge of negotiating the “legally binding instrument to regulate the activities of transnational corporations (TNCs) and other business enterprises with regard to human rights”.
Switzerland played a key role during the negotiation of the Declaration on the Rights of Peasants. However, a study commissioned by several Swiss NGOs shows that its foreign policy leaves much to be desired in this area.
During the 44th session of the Human Rights Council, the CETIM intervened in the plenary of the HRC on the right to health in relation to the COVID-19 pandemic, on the issue of poverty and human rights and on corporate impunity.
