Economic globalisation has to be a fair globalisation. This means enabling the realisation of human rights and the protection of the environment. For more than a decade, we have focused on business and human rights.
Highlights from 2020
In 2020 RAPP, the Regional Asia Pacific Programme, presented a thematic study on the Right
to a Safe, Clean, and Sustainable Environment called Prosperous and green in the Anthropocene: The human right to a healthy environment in Southeast Asia. Southeast Asia faces unprecedented social-ecological challenges that have wide-ranging implications for both human rights and the environment. Recognizing the human right to a healthy environment helps protect people and nature. It also ensures the conditions for continued sustainable development and prosperity.
In 2017, RWI, together with academic partners in China, identified a need for a new teaching resource in ‘Business and Human Rights’ area.”
In the early days of digital learning, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute (RWI) started developing digital learning, e-learning, and blended learning courses. Around ten years ago, the Regional Asia Pacific Programme (RAPP) began to develop and use using blended learning methodologies more consistently, combining digital and face-to-face learning components. Partners, RWI, and donors, agreed that blended learning is useful to deliver impactful capacity development to participants across a large and diverse region.
