Business and human rights (BHR) is a rapidly developing field at the intersection of business, law, and public policy. Teaching Business and Human Rights is a practical guide and resource for the growing community of BHR teachers, students, and practitioners – from advocates and policymakers to business managers and investors.

Chapter authors explain common BHR topics, suggest teaching approaches that work in the classroom, and identify helpful teaching resources. Chapters cover the building blocks of a BHR curriculum: foundational topics including corporate responsibility, human rights, and human rights due diligence; tools, such as legislation and litigation, to provide remedy and hold companies accountable for their human rights impacts; and the specific rights affected by businesses in different industries. Teaching BHR effectively has the potential to improve the protection of human rights as more individuals in the private sector, government and civil society work to advance the corporate responsibility to respect human rights.

Professors and students, practitioners in the private sector, government and civil society, and scholars of BHR will find this thorough and comprehensive resource indispensable.
