How Can Business Help Protect Human Rights?


What are the roles and responsibilities of businesses in regards to the protection of human rights? Is dialogue and self-regulation enough or is further legislation required?

In this episode of ‘On Human Rights’ Stockholm Office Director, Malin Oud, sat down with the Ambassador for Sustainable Business at the Swedish Ministry for Foreign Affairs, Jakob Kiefer at the recent MR-Dagarna (human rights conference) in Stockholm, Sweden to discuss these complex issues.

The conversation took place just before an hour long seminar on human rights defenders and business that both Malin and Jakob particpated in. You can also listen to that full seminar on our channel, ‘On Human Rights.’
