NGO Response to the Voluntary Principles Participation Criteria

, Index number: IOR 40/003/2006

This document expresses the disappointment of the non-governmental organizations Amnesty International, The Fund for Peace, Human Rights First, Human Rights Watch, International Alert, Oxfam America and Pax Christi with the inability to finalize participation criteria at the last Plenary. These NGOs strongly encourage the Plenary, Steering Committee, and the relevant working groups to quickly and expeditiously develop robust reporting guidelines on the implementation of the Principles, and an effective process for appointing investigative panels and recommending remedial measures for non-compliance.
