Multinational enterprises, development and decent work: the approach of the MNE Declaration
Demand for business and human rights education is growing worldwide. Academic institutions are well positioned to prepare future business leaders to manage the human rights impacts of their companies.
The UN Global Compact, in collaboration with the Principles for Responsible Management Education (PRME), invite companies to sign the open letter calling on academic institutions to integrate business and human rights topics into their curriculum.
This letter was drafted jointly by the UN Global Compact Office and the PRME Secretariat. It has been endorsed by the multi-stakeholder UN Global Compact Human Rights and Labour Working Group (HRLWG) and the PRME Working Group on Business and Human Rights.
