PRME Working Group on Business and Human Rights

Description

Business and Human Rights  

This Working Group (WG) aims to engage both business schools and corporations on a range of projects, providing a forum for dialogue and action on human rights issues. By expanding the work that the Global Compact and its Working Group on Human Rights and Labour has already produced into the PRME community, it aims to inspire conversations and as well as new resources, research and curriculum change on business and human rights. As initial steps, this group will focus on refining its mandate, by finalising a concept note (currently in draft stage) and promoting the Open Letter (launched in 2013 by Global Compact and PRME) to encourage academic institutions to educate future managers and leaders on business and human rights. This WG aims to highlight their initial projects at the UN Working Group meeting in November in Geneva.

Concept note to be uploaded soon.
