Updating the Resource Centre Digital Platform

The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of years.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

Chinese Responsible Investment Overseas Newsletter (available in English and Chinese)

"Business/Finance", Max Pixel, BY CC0.

Over the past two decades, Chinese enterprise has taken great efforts in “going out” and has expanded its outbound investment, contracting projects and labour cooperation. In addition to the “Belt and Road” Initiatives (begun in 2013), China has committed to be more actively engaged in global/international economic governance and in response to global challenges. International society, therefore, holds high expectations for Chinese enterprises fulfilling social responsibility and sustainable development; as does the government of China and various industry-led initiatives.

We established a portal on Chinese investment overseas in 2013, to present major concerns of community groups affected by Chinese-funded enterprises, to seek responses from the companies involved, and to promote healthy communication between companies, government, and stakeholders. On this basis, we are now launching the newsletter on “Chinese overseas investment”. Each issue focuses on emerging thematic topics, new cases, good practices, tools and guidelines.
