Welcome

The demands of human rights impact on businesses at a steadily increasing pace. This opens a complex and fast changing field of concerns, posing challenges to law and to the social and natural sciences.

We encourage dialogue across these disciplines and among actors from a broad range of backgrounds. Our aim is to foster research and to bring the results of that research to bear on practical problems, working on national and international issues and collaborating with partners across the world.

Our strengths

  • Pro-active, multi-disciplinary research incorporating a range of legal specialisms
  • Part of a global community of researchers and professionals across NGO’s, corporations and universities
  • We aim to operationalise the concrete context and find a balance between human rights impact and commercial concerns
