Human Rights and International Law

Human rights are rights inherent to all human beings, whatever our nationality, place of residence, sex, national or ethnic origin, colour, religion, language, or any other status. We are all equally entitled to our human rights without discrimination. These rights are all interrelated, interdependent and indivisible. Allegations of involvement in serious human rights abuses can threaten modern business’ reputations and business relationships and may also entail civil or criminal liability for corporations, and for their officers and employees.
