Human Rights Defenders Toolbox
Organisation: Peace Brigades International (PBI) and Simmons
Type: Documents and Manuals
We created the Human Rights Defenders Toolbox for our pro bono client Peace Brigades International. It comprises factsheets on specific legal topics in both English and Spanish which are disseminated to human rights defenders worldwide.
This is the first centralised online resource for rural communities and lawyers.
The factsheets focus on the obligations of companies to respect human rights, as set out in the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). We have also produced a training session on the UNGPs, which can be accessed on the website.
