Women in Business and Human Rights

Mapping conducted by the Danish Institute of Human Rights provides an overview of select topics for State attention in strengthening their gender focus in implementing the United Nations Guiding Principles, including, but not limited to, NAPs.

The topics are:

  • Employment and labour rights
  • Land and natural resources
  • Essential services and privatisation
  • Trade and investment
  • Access to effective remedy

For each topic, the mapping provides an overview of key gender issues, country examples from existing NAPs and other relevant sources on how these issues might be addressed, and key points for consideration for states on how to strengthen attention to the rights of women and girls in UNGPs implementation processes.
