Since our founding in 2002, the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre has played a constructive role at the heart of the global business and human rights movement. Current conditions in this and the next decade encourage us to continue working for the advancement of human rights in societies and seizing opportunities and prospects to create conditions of shared security and shared prosperity.
In the next four years, we will support the movement for human rights in business to transform corporate behaviour through regulation, norms, and leadership, and help uphold the rights of those facing abuse.
Strategic Plan 2021-2024
Our strategic framework, global context, approaches and priority programmes for the next four years.
Our strategic framework
Our vision is a world where business respects human rights and provides redress for abuse, where people are leaders in shaping a rights-respecting and sustainable future for markets and business, and where shared prosperity through greater equality of power and wealth is enjoyed by all.
We work to strengthen partners, allies, and movements so that our collective work ensures that businesses respect and advance human rights, and build shared prosperity through greater equality.
We seek to build, analyse, and deploy evidence to influence decision-makers in governments and businesses towards effective laws, regulation, and norms that transform exploitative business behaviour into a rights-respecting economic model.
We amplify and support the voices and works of partners, allies, and movements to drive accountability for abuse.
- Equality of power in negotiations by workers, communities, and their organisations with business actors.
- Government rules and incentives that insist companies and investors respect human rights in their business operations and through their supply chains, and contribute to diminished inequality, shared prosperity, and the reversal of climate breakdown.
- Businesses and investors transform their business models to end abuse, respect the rights of workers, communities, and peoples and stop harming the climate and environment, and are held to account for abuse.
