Global Business and Human Rights - Putting Germany to the Test

Report

Adopted in 2011, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights provide for the first time an internationally recognised set of recommendations for realising human rights in business. MISEREOR and Germanwatch followed the elaboration of these Guiding Principles very closely, and see them as a first component of a more comprehensive regime to protect human rights in business. The Federal Republic of Germany and the German business community are now called upon to implement these UN Guiding Principles comprehensively.
Against this background, the present report should be seen as a first comprehensive and joint contribution to this debate.
