The adoption of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in 2011 marked a watershed moment, establishing the first global standards for preventing human rights abuses by business. In light of this paradigm shift, The Business and Human Rights Landscape offers the most comprehensive analysis to date of the current legal framework. Its essential research tools include in-depth explorations of the UN Guiding Principles from both theoretical and practical standpoints, with case studies of the Rana Plaza building collapse and Kenyan resource extraction. Bookending current analyses are accounts of business and human rights from a historical perspective (discussing the colonial slave trade) and a forward-looking lens (analyzing labor's role). Bringing together scholars from across the globe, this book represents essential reading for anyone interested in the past, present, or future of business and human rights.
