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.

Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you think!

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer
