Business and Human Rights 


Members and Working Methods

Establishing the Working Group

 
In July 2008, the first Roundtable of National Human Rights Institutions on the Issue of Business and Human Rights was hosted in Copenhagen at DIHR.
 
Representatives of 15 NHRIs from Africa, Asia-Pacific, Americas and Europe took part in the Roundtable, which considered topics including the role of NHRIs in improving government protection in the corporate sector, the role of NHRIs in promoting human rights in the corporate sector, and NHRI strategies on business and human rights.
 
A report summarising discussions at the Roundtable can be found here.
 
Following the Roundtable, a proposal for an ICC Working Group on Human Rights and Business was developed by a Steering Committee of 8 NHRIs, coordinated by DIHR.
 
This proposal was approved by the ICC Bureau at its meeting in Kenya in March 2009.
 
On 12-13 August 2009, the ICC Working Group on Human Rights and Business held its first meeting at DIHR Copenhagen. DIHR was elected as Chair of the Working Group.
 
The Working Group has subsequently met twice annually.​​​​​​
