Introducing This Way Up
This Way Up: Unpacking human rights for business is the first podcast from Business & Human Rights Resource Centre. Over the course of each mini-series, we will outline and interrogate the latest issues related to business and human rights, bringing together diverse expertise from front-line activists, civil society, companies, investors and academia. The aim? To figure out together which way is "up" - the actions we must take to ensure continually improving corporate respect for human rights.
We're adding This Way Up to new platforms all the time. If your favourite is missing from this list, please let us know!

Series one: The UN Guiding Principles at 10
In our first series, we are partnering with the UN Working Group on Business & Human Rights to mark the 10th anniversary of the UN Guiding Principles (UNGPs). Over the course of the series, we will examine the impact and reach of the UNGPs since they were introduced, through a different thematic lens each week. We’ll explore the impact, gaps and opportunities as we look forward to what the next decade might hold.
Series two: Cost of clean energy
Our second series is hosted by Elizabeth Dykstra-McCarthy, former member of the BHRRC Natural Resources team now consulting on climate action and environmental issues around the world. Along with several special guests, she’ll delve into the social impact of the transition minerals boom, the pitfalls of futuristic methods of mineral extraction, and the capacity for communities to hold companies accountable for abuse, all in search of answers to the question; “what is the true cost of clean energy?”
