Business and Human Rights Bridging the Governance Gap

Ford, Jolyon

Description

This research paper explores some trends and debates related to efforts to identify, promote and regulate the roles, responsibilities and impacts of business enterprises in relation to human rights. The emerging field of business and human rights (BHR), encapsulating these issues, is marked by an overall paradox: clear signs of increasing interest and activity around BHR questions exist alongside considerable uncertainty, apathy or outright lack of awareness concerning many key BHR themes.
