Compilation of Commentaries on the “Zero Draft”
This is a compilation of blogs originally published by the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre as part of our Zero Draft Blog series, which features commentaries from diverse thought-leaders on the “Zero Draft” of the proposed legally binding Treaty on business and human rights.
We present this compilation in view of the 4thSession of the Open-ended Inter-Governmental Working Group on transnational corporations and other business enterprises with respect to human rights, as part of our work to highlight key developments and opportunities for change. We aim to empower advocates in civil society, governments and businesses with 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, and that an inclusive and open debate is crucial to ensure these initiatives deliver for everyone, and that the business & human rights movement continues its 'unity in diversity'.
