CEDHA has worked in the field of Human Rights and Business since the 1990s, contributing to David Weissbrodt’s UN Working Group which produced the Norms on the Responsibilities of Transnational Corporations. This seminal initiative gave rise to the UN Mandate on Human Rights and Business led by professor John Ruggie. CEDHA contributed extensively to this mandate, assisting the UN and Professor Ruggie develop the UN’s three pronged strategy to promote the State Duty to Protect, the Corporate Responsibility to Respect and the need for Remedies in cases of corporate abuse of human rights. CEDHA is now engaged on the promotion of the Guiding Principles on Human Rights and Business.
