The half-day training programme equips participants with an understanding of the rapidly developing area of Business and Human Rights (BHR). Through interactive exercises and case studies, the module engages participants to acquire an understanding of key BHR principles, their evolution and the current framework. The module offers a comparative assessment of the nature and content of different policies on human rights by leading companies.
