    Business and Human Rights provides practical guidance to help lawyers and other professionals determine the necessary steps taken to effectively counsel their clients and businesses on the content and execution of human rights diligence in daily business operations. The book follows the flow of the U.N.’s Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights: Implementing the United Nations “Protect, Respect, and Remedy” Framework. Each element in the due diligence process is discussed, including developing human rights policies and commitments, impact assessment, integration, measurement and tracking, and communications and reporting.

    This valuable resource will help lawyers assist clients that are no longer simply asking about “what is legal,” but instead are seeking wise counseling on “what is right.” In a comprehensive approach that covers all areas of potential client issues, this guide discusses:

    • What are human rights and who is responsible
    • International human rights law and development of legally binding standards
    • The role of lawyers and the legal profession in business and human rights

    • Supply chain management
    • Discrimination and vulnerable groups
    • How human rights topics are being integrated into existing standards of professional responsibility for lawyers and law firms
