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.

We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.

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

Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

NBC coverage gives a narrow view of China

Author: Robert Bianco, USA Today, Published on: 27 August 2008

It's not the job of NBC's Olympics coverage to crack what producer Dick Ebersol calls "the mystery of China" or to play referee between our competing political and social systems. But we should ask two things of the network: When you go outside the events, do so honestly; and when news breaks, cover it adequately...Mary Carillo, whose irreverence is usually welcome, did a jokey report on the Three Gorges Dam and the fast train to Tibet that never mentioned that both are wildly controversial: one for its environmental impact, the other as a territorial incursion. [note: Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited NBC (joint venture General Electric, Vivendi Universal) to respond to this article but it has not yet done so. If we receive a response we will link to it alongside.]
