Human Rights and Business Country Guide

The Human Rights and Business Country Guide is currently in a Pilot Phase providing specific business and human rights guidance on 10 countries, expanding to cover 40 countries by 2016. The Country Guide identifies valuable information for governments, companies and civil society organisations dedicated to protect and promote human rights in the context of business. 1) For companies, it provides country-specific guidance to understand and address potential human rights risks and development initiatives. 2) States can use the country information to review and reform policies and legislations to ensure respect for human rights in their own business affairs. 3) The Guide provides civil society organisations with information to “inform their research, advocacy and capacity building efforts.”
