EUROPEAN CASES DATABASE
Prerequisite for the successful use of legal instruments against transnational corporation and board members responsible for human rights violations is both a careful analysis of the legal situation in the affected jurisdictions and a systematic analysis of previous legal practice. Up to now, there were no attempts on the European level to systematically record and evaluate proceedings concerned with human rights violations of corporations with headquarters in Europe. Some databases record proceedings across Europe, but these databases neither record all proceedings, nor do they provide an analysis of the proceedings.
The present study of ECCHR aims to remedy these inadequacies. However, the intention is not to permanently maintain and update this database, but rather to review and analyze previous legal work, with hopes to learn lessons for future cases.
The database is available on request (firstname.lastname@example.org).
