Welcome to our Blog on the Revised Draft of the proposed legally binding Treaty on business and human rights (released in July 2019). We present this series as part of our Debate the Treaty Blog which highlights key developments and opportunities for change, with the aim of empowering advocates in civil society, governments and businesses with the evidence and guidance to help define their position and engagement in the treaty process. We believe this initiative is complementary to the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles. How could the Revised Draft complement the Guiding Principles? Does it address the concerns of the business and human rights movement? How can the draft instrument deliver for all stakeholders? What should the content and scope of the Treaty be? This blog aims to provide space for an exchange of views by thought leaders across the field on these very questions.
