OHCHR B-Tech Project

UN Human Rights has launched the B-Tech Project which will seek to provide authoritative guidance and resources to enhance the quality of implementation of the United National Guiding Principles on Business and Human rights with respect to a selected number of strategic focus areas in the technology space.

In August 2019, UN Human Rights invited written submissions from all stakeholders on the B-Tech Project draft scoping paper for consultation which sets out the proposed scope and focus areas of the Project. The final version of the scoping paper is available here.

summary report and Introductory remarks are also available from the B-Tech Project's First Multi-Stakeholder Expert Consultation at RightsCon 2019.

For more information about the Project, visit the B-Tech Project page and any questions or comments can be sent to [email protected].
