From the Publisher:
From Asian sweatshops to oil-based violence in Nigeria, the challenges of regulating harmful corporate practices in some of the world's most difficult regions long seemed insurmountable. Human rights groups and businesses were locked in a stalemate. In 2005 the United Nations appointed John Ruggie to examine the problem and identify a path forward. From this inauspicious start, Ruggie produced his ?Protect, Respect and Remedy? Framework and ?Guiding Principles? to implement it. A road map for responsible corporate practices that takes a pragmatic yet rights-based approach, the Guiding Principles hold both states and businesses accountable for providing more effective protection to individuals and communities. These ?Ruggie Rules? were endorsed unanimously by the UN. They are being incorporated by governments and companies around the world and are employed by human rights and workers' groups. Just Business shows how this powerful transformation came about and what it means for governments, businesses, and people everywhere.
