Biashara na Haki – Impacts of Businesses on Human Rights
The Biashara na Haki: Impacts of Businesses on Human Rights series seeks to respond to concerns raised by HURICAP’s local partners in Africa that there are insufficient human rights education materials aimed at local nongovernmental organisations (NGOs) and community-based organisations (CBOs) in relation to corporate-related human rights issues. The Biashara na Haki series is composed of two handbooks.
Part 1: Knowing your Rights
The first edition Biashara na Haki. Part 1: Knowing your Rights is aimed at community-based organizations and human rights NGOs that potentially deal with business and human rights issues in sub-Saharan Africa. Part 1 aims to explain human rights standards and their application to various actors, including States and businesses.
Part 2: Taking Action
The second edition Biashara na Haki. Part 2: Taking Action provides information, practical methods, and tools that civil society organisations (CSOs) and community rights advocates can use to accompany and empower people to prevent or mitigate harm, or to obtain adequate remedy for the harm resulting from business activities.
