This checklist is developed by ESCR-Net & Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, incorporating feedback from civil society representatives around the world. The checklist is available in 12 languages.


The project responds to needs expressed from groups around the world (including ESCR-Net members and partners of Business & Human Rights Resource Centre). It aims to provide greater support for affected communities that can help them effectively document the corporate-related human rights abuses they are experiencing.

While we acknowledge that documentation itself will not be enough necessarily lead to resolution of the problems communities face, the project is designed to spur community-developed documentation in a way that provides greater awareness of the situation they face, and connect them with the support and alliances needed to maximise the power of this documentation.
