Equality and Human Rights Commission – A Guide to Business and Human Rights

The Equality and Human Rights Commission has just issued A Guide to Business and Human Rights – How Human Rights Can Add Value to Your Business. The guide is aimed at British businesses and specifically Small and Medium Enterprises (SMEs). It provides simple answers to key questions such as “What are human rights?” and “Why are human rights important for your business?”. It also includes a useful list of human rights relevant to business and a directory of useful contacts.

This short, practical guide draws on research carried out by my colleague Dr Jérémie Gilbert (University of East London) and I, which found a particular gap in the support available to smaller businesses to understand what is meant by business and human rights and what they can do to ensure respect for human rights. Our report can be found here.
