Business and Human Rights : From Principles to Practice

Business and Human Rights : From Principles to Practice

Description

In a global economy, multinational companies often operate in jurisdictions where governments are either unable or unwilling to uphold even the basic human rights of their citizens. The expectation that companies respect human rights in their own operations and in their business relationships is now a business reality that corporations need to respond to.

Business and Human Rights: From Principles to Practice is the first comprehensive and interdisciplinary textbook that addresses these issues. It examines the regulatory framework that grounds the business and human rights debate and highlights the business and legal challenges faced by companies and stakeholders in improving respect for human rights, exploring such topics as:



the regulatory framework that grounds the business and human rights debate




challenges faced by companies and stakeholders in improving human rights




industry-specific human rights standards




current mechanisms to hold corporations to account




future challenges for business and human rights



With supporting case studies throughout, this text provides an overview of current themes in the field and guidance on practical implementation, demonstrating that a thorough understanding of the human rights challenges faced by business is now vital in any business context.
