Business and Human Rights Advocacy Lab publishes report
Last spring, the Kenan Institute for Ethics sponsored a second year of the undergraduate Business and Human Rights Advocacy Lab, a course taught by DHRC at KIE project director Suzanne Katzenstein. The report, written and edited by five Duke University undergraduates, was created for Corporate Responsibility Watch, an NGO based in India, features research on nine companies, focusing on the relationship between corporate policies and actual business practices. Each case study provides an important vantage point for understanding how a company’s industry, reputation, or performance on CRW’s policy metrics impacts the relationship between corporate policy and practice. Taken together, the cases studies seek to spur discussion of how to evaluate and encourage companies’ commitment to the NVGs and CSR more broadly.
