@BIICL & @UCPH conference on Human Rights Due Diligence & Systemic Inequalities is happening now. #bizhumanrights @siddhartesse @cepri_law @jura_ku… (thread)
@KMhumanrights: Must look at causes & effects. E.g. reasons for forced labour in a factory or mine. Can be climate crisis, result of land acquisition. #SystIneq21
@KMhumanrights The reality is that many of the violations are very much apparent & it doesn't or shouldn't take much HRDD to actually discover them. #bizhumanrights #SystIneq21

After a DECADE of research, we are releasing a 235-page report concluding that the grand experiment of voluntary corporate regulation and multi-stakeholderism has failed to protect against corporate human rights abuses.…
2/ It's time to #RethinkMSIs. They can be powerful tools for building trust, exchanging knowledge and experimentation, but they are not effective as tools to reliably detect or remedy human rights abuse. We need regulation for that, at local, national and international levels.
3/ Will unpack our six key insights into the systemic limitations of MSIs later, but here’s an example: Nearly a third of MSIs don't have a mechanism for rights holders to seek remedy. Those that do don't meet even the basic criteria of the #UNGPs, e.g. transparent, accessible.

THREAD on biz, human rights and tech. 1/ On this 70th anniversary of the UDHR’s adoption by UNGA, connecting dots from UDHR to tech today. UDHR-> ICCPR-> UNGPs-> GNI Principles-> #tech company human rights commitments, infrastructure, and decisions. #UDHR:…
2/ UDHR is unique in modern int'l political system (post-1648) b/c rights declared inherent in all people based on human dignity, not derived from god, a king or the state. For provisions that we relate to the tech sector today, see Articles 12 (privacy) and 19 (free expression).
