Reflections (1) Article 4 Draft Legally Binding Instrument
a) the rights listed by Article 4 need not exist in those States, businesses, territories and circumstances where no violations of human rights allegedly occur during economic activity. In the absence of violations of rights, there are no “victims”. And if there are no victims, the rights attached to them are not neededb) the rights listed by Article 4 do not exist for those persons who, due to the most diverse reasons, suffer an actual harm, but cannot enjoy the status of “victims”c) the “rights of victims”, and possible remedies to their violation, are of very limited or no concern to business enterprises, given how the DLBI “speaks” to the State and to “victims”d) in the “world” created by the DLBI, all those rights not listed by Article 4 seem to be of secondary importance to “victims”.
