The EU-funded research project 'Human Rights in Business' explored judicial and non-judicial remedies within the EU to hold companies domiciled in a Member State liable for human rights violations for which they or their subcontractors are responsible, wherever the damage might have occurred. The project team formulated answers to the question how parties concerned by human rights violations, may they directly or indirectly be caused by corporate actions, are able to receive judicial remedy and compensation.

The Austrian government recently agreed on measures that involve direct interference with individuals’ rights to liberty. Amongst others, so called “Gefährder” (individuals considered to be a threat to public safety) and rejected asylum seekers are affected.

In this current BIM Position, we examine these measures from a human rights perspective, exploring the link between the rule of law principle and considerations of public security.
