As part of Shift’s mission to support the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, Shift has submitted formal comments on the updating and development of National Action Plans on business and human rights currently taking place in the United Kingdom and the United States respectively. Shift is also actively contributing to the National Action Plan process in Germany through participation at several expert and stakeholder events held over the past year.
Shift’s formal submissions to the UK and US National Action Plans are available online:
UK – hosted by Business and Human Rights Resource Centre
US – hosted by International Corporate Accountability Roundtable
In 2013, Shift helped to author a study on the implementation of the Guiding Principles in Germany. The study was designed to help prepare for the development of the German National Action Plan on business and human rights.
