The Business and Human Rights Resource Center has called this “Zero Draft” "a key milestone in a complex and lengthy process, against the backdrop of a political context which has become increasingly challenging since the UN Human Rights Council voted by majority to begin negotiations in June 2014." (Business and Human Rights Resource Centre, Reflections on the Zero Draft).
My comments were circulated HERE.
My colleague, Flora Sapio (Uni Naples and CPE) also has recently prepared comments to the Zero-Draft. With her permission I post them below.
