LPHR briefing: UK Govt’s position on the UN business & human rights database
Author: Lawyers for Palestinian Human Rights, Published on: 12 January 2018
LPHR has today published a briefing to coincide with the pending publication by the United Nations of a database listing companies involved in settlement-related activities that adversely impact Palestinian human rights. The publication of the UN Database will be a landmark development in advancing corporate respect for human rights.
The UN Database is expected to be published by the UN Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights in early 2018. It may include UK companies.
Our short briefing has a specific focus on the UK Government’s position of opposing the UN Database. It outlines why the UK Government should properly revise its position so as to establish coherence with its existing policy positions on recognising the illegality of settlements and support for the UN Guiding Principles and Business and Human Rights. Our briefing concludes with three suggested actions for the UK Government to carefully consider in regard to the UN Database.
