Corporate Training on Human Rights Protection

Human rights violations find a link to the Corporate sector. The Business sector contributes materially to the number of instances of human rights violations. Since their corporate emergence, much before the nation-state was born, businesses have had a serious impact on human rights, more adverse than beneficial. Globalisation and the proliferation of multinational corporations has only exacerbated the situation and there is now a need to search for the appropriate paradigm within which businesses would not only stop having an adverse impact on human rights, but would, in fact, promote them.

IPF proposes training programmes for the corporate sector to enable them to understand the adverse effect of human right violations on the society as a whole as well as individually, and also to help them know and use the tools in fighting human right violations.
