This discussion paper is intended to provide an overview of and insight into the main trends of policy work and research on state-based non-judicial mechanisms as background to a public policy discussion of non-judicial mechanisms in Norway. It focuses on some existing models and practices adopted by non-judicial mechanisms that engage directly with corporations in an effort to assess and resolve human rights grievances and other complaints relevant to CSR issues. This paper is meant as a contribution to the discussion on the extraterritorial responsibilities of Norwegian companies and the non-judicial mechanisms that might provide access to remedies to victims of corporate misconduct.
