The Business Person’s Guide to Human Rights Risk Assessment
Languages available: English
This Guide is meant to be a short explanation of what a Human Rights Risk Assessment is and how a company can use it. Business and Human Rights is a new, complex and often confusing area. An enormous amount of background explanation on business and human rights is readily available. This Guide does not attempt to provide all of that information. It assumes that the reader has general familiarity with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (the “UN Guiding Principles”, which has become the recognized global standard). This Guide also assumes that the reader is a business person who needs to know about identifying and understanding human rights risks in a business operation. The Human Rights Risk Assessment is a specific tool for that use.
