Middle East and North Africa regional briefings

Saudi Arabia

Latest briefing: Dec 2013

Business & human rights in the Middle East and North Africa - December 2013

The Middle East and North Africa are regions where human rights in business need to develop rapidly. From the role of construction companies and employment agencies bringing in migrant workers for massive construction projects, including for the Qatar World Cup; to the role of internet companies in facilitating or blocking freedom of expression and association for citizens; the need to end discrimination against women in the workplace; and the role of private military and security companies in conflict zones; these issues all highlight the opportunity that business has to support human rights, and the dire consequences for people when they do not.
