Connecting Business initiative Secretariat • 20 November 2018

This International Alert guidance addresses the question of how companies can ensure respect for human rights in their operations without exacerbating or generating conflicts. The objectives of the guidance are:

  • Help companies from the extractive sector understand any conflicts in their operating context and identify the implications these have for HRDD.
  • Provide tools, case studies and recommendations to help companies and other practitioners conducting HRDD in conflict-affected settings.
  • Contribute to ongoing debates on business, human rights and conflict sensitivity.
