Rahman Ravelli assess the trend for cross-border litigation regarding alleged human rights violations

Author: Syedur Rahman  29 September 2021

Rahman Ravelli examine the rise in Europe of complex, cross-border litigation relating to alleged violations of human rights.

In an article that was published by the FCPA Blog, Rahman Ravelli explain France’s Duty of Vigilance Law. The Law requires companies to produce and implement a “vigilance plan”, to identify human rights and environmental risks resulting from their activities, and devise measures to prevent them.

They also detail the French Supreme Court decision that has revived the litigation against French cement conglomerate Lafarge, over its activities in Syria.

Their piece looks at the approach being taken by Germany, which has enacted the Supply Chain Due Diligence Act. They also consider the likely impact of the European Union’s (EU’s) Corporate Due Diligence and Accountability Directive, which would force businesses to conduct due diligence on the effect their activities have on human rights, the environment, and good governance. Rahman Ravelli also explain the scope of the global sanctions regime that the EU adopted in December 2020.
