- Aims to help States better implement their State duty to protect (DtP) under the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) across investment policymaking.
- Highlights why investment policymaking should be a priority area for UNGP implementation.
- Offers a practical Guide to implementation by (i) mapping the diverse State functions, instruments and actors that are relevant throughout the life cycle of an investment project; (ii) presenting six key issues that are most relevant for implementing the UNGPs in investment policymaking; and (iii) providing ideas and examples of measures for State implementation.
- Is intended for government officials who are involved in all stages of investment policymaking and for those leading the implementation of the UNGPs; it is also intended for use by civil society, business enterprises and other stakeholders who can contribute to improving the ability of States to protect human rights in the context of investment.
