At its 26th session, on 26 June 2014, the Human Rights Council adopted
resolution 26/9 by which it decided “to establish an open-ended intergovernmental working group on transnational corporations and other business enterprises with respect to human rights, whose mandate shall be to elaborate an international legally binding instrument to regulate, in international human rights law, the activities of transnational corporations and other business enterprises.”
The open-ended intergovernmental working group (OEIGWG) has had six sessions so far. Ahead of the
6th session, the Permanent Mission of Ecuador, on behalf of the Chairmanship of the OEIGWG, released
a second revised draft legally binding instrument on business activities and human rights. The second revised draft serves as the basis for State-led direct substantive intergovernmental negotiations during the
sixth session of the OEIGWG, which took place from
26 to 30 October 2020.
