HUMAN RIGHTS AND BUSINESS DILEMMAS FORUM (UN GLOBAL COMPACT)
"The Human Rights and Business Dilemmas Forum aims to enhance our collective understanding of human rights themes and to stimulate discussion about the dilemmas responsible multi-national companies may face in their efforts to respect and support human rights when operating in emerging economies. It does so using innovative online feedback mechanisms to allow users to propose, explore and discuss a wide range of dilemmas and potential good practice. The Forum also provides a series of case studies demonstrating real-world dilemmas faced by companies and other organizations around the world - as well as real-world efforts to manage or resolve these dilemmas in a responsible way. Links are included to other relevant websites, resources and initiatives.
"Each dilemma is supported and illustrated by good practice case studies developed for the Human Rights and Business Dilemmas Forum. Case studies have been developed in close collaboration with a range of multi-national companies and relevant government, inter-governmental and civil society stakeholders. We also draw on public domain sources, including the UN Global Compact's own published Communications on Progress, through which signatories are required to report on their performance against the Ten Principles.
"The case studies explore the specific dilemmas and challenges faced by each organisation, good practice actions they have taken to resolve them and the results of such action. We reference challenges as well as achievements and invite you to submit commentary and suggestions."
