Business and human rights, some practical advice

According to the excellent business-humanrights.org website, yesterday:

“The United Nations released a much-anticipated set of Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights…The Guiding Principles seek to provide for the first time an authoritative global standard for preventing and addressing the risk of adverse human rights impacts linked to business activity.”

In light of that rather significant moment, Anthony Ewing, who teaches business and human rights at Columbia Law School in the US, has a two part piece on the subject on our website:

UN Human Rights Framework: What executives need to know and do about human rights, part I

UN Human Rights Framework: What executives need to know and do about human rights, part II
