In November 2008, Oxford Pro Bono Publico (OPBP) provided submissions to the UN Special Representative on Business and Human Rights, John Ruggie, regarding "Obstacles to Justice and Redress for Victims of Corporate Human Rights Abuse".
Earlier this year, OPBP received a letter from the European Centre for Constitutional and Human Rights (ECCHR) congratulating OPBP on the quality of these submissions and noting their continued usefulness in the ECCHR’s daily work. Claudia Müller-Hoff, of the ECCHR’s Business and Human Rights Program, described OPBP's report as an “essential research instrument” which is recommended as “standard reference material to (the ECCHR’s) legal trainees and research fellows.”
OPBP welcomes this reflection of the ongoing impact of its projects, and is delighted to have been able to support the ECCHR’s important work in this area.
OPBP is constantly seeking further opportunities to assist individuals and organisations working in pro bono and public interest law around the world. It warmly invites enquiries regarding potential projects which can be directed to firstname.lastname@example.org.
