Objetivos This certificate course offered jointly by HREA and the Human Rights Centre of the UN-mandated University for Peace introduces participants to the major themes and debates concerning the linkages between business and human rights. Since their corporate emergence, much before the nation-state was born, businesses have had a serious impact on human rights, more adverse than beneficial. Globalisation and the proliferation of multinational corporations has only exacerbated the situation whereby global leaders and human rights advocates are now scrambling to search for the appropriate paradigm within which businesses would not only stop having an adverse impact on human rights, but would, in fact, promote them.
