Nomination, selection and appointment of the members of the UN Working Group on human rights and transnational corporations and other business enterprises: A checklist
In September 2011 the United Nations Human Rights Council President is to appoint five independent human rights experts to serve as the newly established Working Group on the issue of human rights and transnational corporations and other business enterprises. Amnesty International, Human Rights Watch, the International Commission of Jurists, and Rights & Accountability in Development urge governments, non-governmental organisations, National Human Rights Institutions and others to advertise these vacancies widely and to use this checklist to identify eligible candidates for appointment to the Working Group.
