As the eff ects of globalization have intensifi ed over the past decades, allegations of human rights violations by transnational corporations (TNCs) have steadily increased. However, while the activities of TNCs have signifi cantly expanded, the ability to seek redress for business practices that negatively impact on human rights has not kept pace. The emphasis of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights on the duty of both states and corporations to provide access to remedies is an important step towards addressing this imbalance. 2 The present chapter nonetheless contends that focus must extend beyond the mere availability and accessibility of remedial processes. The debate must equally consider how remedies can more eff ectively respond to the needs of those seeking reparations.
