We invite you to participate in a 60-minute conversation to mark the publication of Transnational Corporations and Human Rights Overcoming Barriers to Judicial Remedy and to celebrate the scholarship of Gwynne Skinner (1964 – 2017) with a panel of her co-authors and co-contributors. Access to remedy in BHR cases remains as high on the agenda as it was when Gwynne started writing. The webinar will highlight the book’s contribution and address key litigation developments that have occurred since its publication, including the cases of Okpabi v. Shell (awaiting judgment from the U.K. Supreme Court); Nestle USA v. Doe (oral argument in the U.S. Supreme Court on Dec. 1, 2020) and Araya v. Nevsun (the subject of important Canadian Supreme Court decision, and recent settlement). 12-11-2020 Transnational Litigation
