Human Rights and Business enquiry: call for evidence

The Joint Committee for Human Rights launched an enquiry into human rights and business in June 2016.

The inquiry looks in particular at:

  • What steps the Government takes to monitor compliance with the UN Guiding Principles
  • How far the Government is able to enforce the UN Guiding Principles
  • Whether, and if so what, progress British business has made in carrying out its responsibility to respect human rights
  • Whether victims of human rights abuse involving business enterprises within UK jurisdiction have access to effective remedy

The enquiry was accepting written submissions. The deadline was Friday 8 July 2016.
