What are The Hague Rules about?
The Hague Rules bear great promise as a new, consensual and flexible remedy mechanism for both vulnerable people and businesses in accordance with the UNGP-based corporate responsibility to respect human rights across the globe. The launch represents the culmination of years of work. We look forward to sharing The Hague Rules with you and discuss together how this new set of customized arbitration rules can contribute to filling the judicial remedy gap.
