Key messages from high-level panel debate
Mgr Ramazzini, Bishop of Huehuetenango-Guatemala, shared his experience from the ground where he witnesses many Human Rights abuses linked to the activities of transnational corporations. He welcomed the European Parliament’s urgent resolution on Guatemala human rights defenders, which echoes the Church’s claim for all to live a “dignified life”.
Claire Courteille-Mulder, Director of the ILO Office in Brussels, deplores the lack of implementation of its conventions.
Markus Krajewski, Chair of Public Law and International Law at the University of Erlangen-Nürnberg, presented the results of the study CIDSE commissioned. He acknowledges that many conflicts leading to Human Rights abuses arise from unbalanced power relations.
