Solving the Human Rights Challenge

Author: BSR (Business for Social Responsibility), Published on: 1 February 2011

This year may well prove to be a watershed moment for business and human rights. In June, Professor John Ruggie, UN Special Representative for Business and Human Rights, will present his final recommendations for managing business impacts on human rights to the UN Human Rights Council. Ruggie's "Protect, Respect, and Remedy" Framework has already emerged as the de facto standard for corporate responsibility for human rights, and in 2011 businesses around the world will rush to strengthen their human rights management systems in accordance with Ruggie's guiding principles...In this issue, you will find examples of our work developing human rights strategies, addressing labor rights in the supply chain, strengthening the protections for migrant workers, and exploring the human rights challenges of industries such as the information and communications technology sector.
