Law, business and human rights: Bridging the gap

Robert C. Bird, Daniel Robert Cahoy, Jamie Darin Prenkert

Research output: Book/ReportBook

Abstract

The intersection of business and human rights contains substantial economic, social, and political implications. Global business enterprises and civil society groups must establish a constructive and meaningful dialogue in order to work cooperatively to protect human rights. In this innovative book, the authors explore the role of firms in respecting human rights and explain the need for a better understanding of the human rights of affected stakeholders. The goal is to draw attention to these issues and generate common ground between two potentially disparate and conflicting interests.
