2017 survey 2

Survey for study on cross-border law enforcement cooperation in business and human rights cases

Responding to a request of the Human Rights Council (res. 32/10), the Working Group will "prepare a study on best practices and how to improve on the effectiveness of cross-border cooperation between States with respect to law enforcement on the issue of business and human rights." To solicit information for this study, this questionnaire was created to find concrete examples of investigations and prosecutions in cross-border cases, the agencies involved in these investigations and prosecutions, how they cooperated amongst each other, and what problems they faced and how these problems were or could have been overcome. The results of the questionnaire informed the study, which was presented to the Human Rights Council at its 35th session in June 2017.
