A NEW GLOBAL STUDY

Investigating the role of the lawyer in shaping the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights

Businesses face significant challenges in aligning their internal policies and practices to ensure that human rights are respected in their operations. Whilst significant progress has been made, there is still a long way to go in increasing the global respect for human rights in business practices. We recognise that lawyers have a unique and important role to play in furthering the human rights agenda. In light of this, RSG Consulting is conducting a global study that seeks to assess and analyse the current level of implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the role that lawyers are playing in shaping this process.

We are seeking and welcome input from in-house and private practice lawyers for this study. If you are interested in participating, please contact Lucy Pearson at lucy.pearson@rsgconsulting.com. The full report will be shared with all participants.
