Special Series: Business and Human Rights

Our Special Series explores critical questions around the fast-evolving field of Business and Human Rights.

We’ll be publishing during and directly following the UN Forum on Business and Human Rights, Geneva, Dec 1-4 2014.

We address questions at the very core of the motivations and models behind business engaging with human rights as well the current framework of international law and voluntary codes. With technology at center stage in current discussions, we also highlight new innovations that are being put in place by businesses to help them and other actors ensure protection of rights in the countries where they operate.
