MP Lilián Galán addresses the 49th Session of the UN Human Rights Council
For the 49th session of the UN Human Rights Council, on March 16th, 2022, the Uruguayan MP Lilian Galán, member of the Global Interparliamentary Network (GIN), has presented a statement on behalf of the Transnational Institute.
As a member of the Global South, Lilian reminded us of the efforts of corporations and some Northern states to water down the Binding Treaty by transforming the much-needed concrete and binding obligations into mere contractual exercises.
In her video, Lilian has emphasized the importance that the 4th draft be robust and respond to the demands of affected communities. She reaffirmed the importance of the commitment and engagement of members of GIN in guaranteeing that human rights prevail over corporation interests.
