About the Country Guide

The Human Rights and Business Country Guide provides country-specific guidance to help companies respect human rights and contribute to development.

For companies to manage their potential human rights impacts, they must have comprehensive information about the local human rights context in which they operate. The Country Guide provides a systematic overview of human rights issues for particular attention by companies. For each issue, the Guide provides guidance on how to ensure respect for human rights in company operations or in collaboration with local suppliers and business partners.

The Country Guide is not only a resource, but a process. Guides are developed and used in collaboration with partners in each national context. You can read more about the process here.
