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

[PDF] Trading away peace: How Europe helps sustain illegal Israeli settlements

Author: Intl. Federation for Human Rights (FIDH) & others, Published on: 1 October 2012

This report documents the effects of Israeli settlements on Palestinian rights and livelihoods…It outlines the economic links between Europe and the settlements, naming the most common settlement products sold in Europe and detailing the involvement of European companies. The report also analyses European and national policies relevant to trade and other linkages with settlements. It presents a range of concrete and feasible measures to bring the actions of national governments and the EU in line with their words and to ensure that their policies do not directly or indirectly assist the settlements.

We invited Mekorot to respond to the concerns raised in relation to its impact on access to water for Palestinians. Mekorot said it implements the Israeli Government’s policy. We previously invited Ahava to respond to the concerns raised in relation to its operations (in another report) but it did not respond].
