In This Together: How companies, governments and communities can collaborate to address security and human rights challenges
Recent geopolitical shifts, the imbalances created by the armed conflict in Ukraine, the drive for new minerals facilitating decarbonization and the spread of mandatory due diligence laws are all increasing the urgency to support companies in navigating complex business environments in which human rights are a key concern. The way that security is provided can either make or break the foundation of peace, justice and strong institutions at the heart of the Sustainable Development Goals. Companies face heightened challenges managing their security arrangements and respecting human rights. Security providers protecting companies’ staff, assets and operations may engage in violations of international humanitarian law or serious human rights abuses. At the same time, business actors can play a powerful role in reinforcing positive security dynamics, particularly when working together with national authorities, civil society and the wider international community.

This webinar will explore different approaches taken by companies, governments and civil society to address these challenges. The webinar will also celebrate the launch of the new edition of the Security and Human Rights Toolkit.
