Abstract

A fundamental shift has occurred. The United Nations once dealt only with governments. By now we know that peace and prosperity cannot be achieved without active partnerships involving governments, international organisations, the business community and civil society. In today’s world we depend on each other. The business of the United Nations involves the businesses of the world.

Keywords: Human Rights Law, International Law
