Today, IHRB and the Leadership Group for Responsible Recruitment launch the Responsible Recruitment Gateway.

A major cause of forced labour in today’s global supply chains is the charging of recruitment fees to migrant workers. Reflecting the Dhaka Principles for Migration with Dignity, the Employer Pays Principle is a commitment to ensure that no worker should pay for a job. The Responsible Recruitment Gateway provides access to a range of tools and information to help companies implement the Employer Pays Principle and move towards ethical recruitment.

Explore the Gateway: www.employerpays.org http://ow.ly/i/qDtuO http://ow.ly/i/qGcea

During 2016, nearly 20 organisations have been developing multi-stakeholder dialogue and joint action aimed at strengthening human rights risk assessment and mitigation in mega-sporting events from bidding through to construction, delivery and legacy. Mary Robinson has lent her energy and leadership to chair this initiative, the Mega-Sporting Events Platform for Human Rights, which is facilitated by IHRB.

The Sporting Chance Forum, held in Washington D.C. on 13-14 October 2016, offered an opportunity for knowledge sharing and stock-taking of learning so far. This meeting report offers an overview of the two-day discussions, as well as conclusions and next steps for the MSE Platform.

Shaping Policy | Advancing Practice | Strengthening Accountability
Introduction

The Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) is dedicated to being a global centre of excellence and expertise on the relationship between business and internationally proclaimed human rights standards.

We provide a trusted, impartial space for dialogue and independent analysis to deepen understanding of human rights challenges and issues and the appropriate role of business.

We seek to address problems where the law may be unclear, where accountability and responsibility may not be well-defined, and where legitimate dispute settlement mechanisms may be non-existent or poorly-administered.

The Institute works to raise corporate standards and strengthen public policy to ensure that the activities of companies do not contribute to human rights abuses, and in fact lead to positive outcomes.
