ECCJ believes that there are significant opportunities within European Law to improve accountability of European companies.
After a year of hard work, we have compiled research and have conducted a series of consultations with company law specialists, CSR academics and civil society groups to evaluate the current obstacles to corporate justice. During the exercise we have also stopped to consider what changes to EU law could help prevent human rights abuses and environmental degradation within the sphere of responsibilty of European Multinational Enterprises.
The findings of our work can be found in the following two documents:
The report "Fair Law" which presents the legal analysis and arguments for the proposals;
The report "With power comes responsibility" which presents our proposals through an analysis of what could have been their effect in concrete real case studies of corporate misconduct;
