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.
