Business and human rights Frameworks

CIDSE member organisations work to prevent business enterprises from becoming complicit in or tacitly benefiting from human rights violations. It is in this context that CIDSE has been focusing on the mandate of the United Nations Secretary General’s Special Representative for Business and Human Rights, Professor John Ruggie, or the so-called Ruggie process. This six-year process has come to its conclusion at the June 2011 UN Human Rights Council. CIDSE advocates for a strong follow-up mechanism, which must focus on how best to prevent and substantially reduce cases of serious corporate violations of human rights.
