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

Civil society space and the private sector

13:30-15:00 | 14 June | Geneva

The impact of business on space for civil society is complex, as business can both contribute and benefit to the closing of space for civil society actors, but also has the potential of being an ally to civil society in defending such space. Business is increasingly recognising the shared interest of companies and civil society in open and democratic societies.

This side event aims to bring together civil society, members of the business community, UN and State representatives to discuss their intersecting role in delivering on human rights and development standards. The event will focus on lessons learnt on how to ensure the effective realisation of these commitments and identify strategies for effective multi-stakeholder participation in the development of norms on business and human rights.

Co-sponsored by CIVICUS and the International Service for Human Rights.
