An analysis of National Action Plans from 2013-2018
With an increasing number of states adopting Nation Action Plans (NAPs) on Business and Human Rights, it is important to review NAPs and to identify their strengths and weaknesses. Without an awareness of the strengths and weaknesses of current NAPs, covering the development process, content, and implementation process, there is a danger that accountability gaps form and widen.
The Danish Institute for Human Rights conducted an analysis of the development process, content, and implementation of current NAPs adopted between 2013-2018 and published its findings in a report in November 2018.
The analysis identifies both positives and a number of areas of concern regarding both process and content-related issues. By gathering the information in one place and highlighting relevant findings, the hope is to provide insights to professionals working with the development of future NAPs.
