Full Description


The spotlight of global scrutiny has shone particularly brightly on corporations' adverse impacts on human rights in recent years. Corporations make up more than two-thirds of the world's top economies today, and so rightly they are being called to account for their impacts on society and the communities in which they operate. The Business of Human Rights demystifies the relevance of human rights for business, explaining how the corporate responsibility to respect human rights under the UN Guiding Principles can be implemented in practice. It provides a straightforward, practical guide that can be easily read and interpreted by managers to help businesses navigate this complex area of legislation and "soft" law to fulfil their responsibilities. It explains the potential legal, financial and reputational implications for corporations and the steps they need to take to address them. The book tracks some of the major global developments in business and human rights, including the emergence of foreign, transnational, and international law and the proliferation of multi-stakeholder initiatives on business and human rights. Case studies from a range of sectors and industries - such as extractives, apparel, fast-moving consumer goods, electronics, and banking and finance - illustrate the enormous risks and opportunities human rights pose for business in practice.The Business of Human Rights will equip corporate executives, sustainability practitioners, academics, students, and anyone interested in business's impacts on society with the essential information and tools they need to quickly come up to speed with the rapidly evolving area of business and human rights.
