OECD Watch Quarterly Case Update Summer 2009 out now

The OECD Watch Summer 2009 Quarterly Case Update is out now.

OECD Watch is a network that serves to strengthen cooperation between civil society organisations worldwide, built capacity and promote a corporate accountability framework in the interest of sustainability and poverty eradication. OECD Watch was established at a meeting between civil society organisations in Amersfoort, the Netherlands, on March 20-22, 2003, with the primary aim to help facilitate NGO activities around the OECD Guidelines and the work of the OECD’s Investment Committee (IC). The network’s membership consists of a diverse range of civil society organisations working on human rights, labour rights, consumer rights, transparency, the environment and sustainable development.

An important publication by OECD watch is the Guide to the OECD guidelines for multinationals enterprises' complaint procedure, published November 2006. This guide was designed with the lessons of the past in mind. A number of guides and reports exist to advise NGOs on the Guidelines. These earlier publications continue to be important resources for NGOs that are considering filing complaints. This guide is meant to supplement the existing NGO resources.

Other publications can be found on the OECD Watch website.
