Public discussion about human rights defenders and National Action Plans

On 15 June 2016, Catie Shavin, a Director of the Global Business Initiative on Human Rights, joined a panel convened by the International Service for Human Rights (ISHR) and the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR) in Geneva. The panel explored how and why human rights defenders should be consulted in the development of National Action Plans on Business and Human Rights, and launched new guidance developed by the ISHR and ICAR on that subject. Further information and a copy of the new guide is available here.
