The Routes to Remedy (R2R) Toolkit has been developed by the Business and Human Rights team at the United Nations Development Programme with support from the Government of Sweden. Global Rights Compliance provided technical support to develop the R2R Toolkit.
The R2R Toolkit details the avenues to remedy, including grievance mechanisms and substantive remedies, at the disposal of defenders in seven selected jurisdictions and internationally. It provides easy-to-use, step-by-step guidance on accessing remedy for business-related human rights impacts.
To ensure that the R2R Toolkit responds to the lived experiences of human rights defenders, it has been developed through consultations, safe space sessions and roundtable discussions with defenders and civil society organisations.
