Committee on the Rights of the Child, Recommendation for Madagascar par. 22 (2012)

Text of the recommendation

22. The Committee recommends that the State party establish and implement regulations to ensure that the business sector complies with international and domestic standards on corporate social responsibility, in line with the United Nations Business and Human Rights Framework , which outlines the duty of States to protect against human rights abuses by businesses; corporate responsibility to respect human rights; and the need for more effective access to remedies when violations occur. In doing so, the Committee encourages the State party to focus on the protection of the rights of the child and to investigate and provide remedies in reported cases of abuse by corporations and their executives. The Committee encourages the State party to consider the Human Rights Council r esolution 8/7 welcoming the report identifying the ¨Protect, Respect and Remedy¨ framework and r esolution 14/7 requesting the new Working Group to follow-up on this matter , both of which note that the rights of the child be included when exploring the relationship between business and human rights.
