Abstract

This article examines a company’s responsibility to respect human rights, focusing in particular on corporate global supply chains. While global supply chains have long been associated with a range of human rights violations, a number of recent legislative initiatives both in Australia and elsewhere are applying traditional corporate concepts - such as due diligence and reporting - in a human rights framework, to ensure companies respect human rights wherever they operate.

Keywords: global supply chains, due diligence, human rights, framework, responsibility, violations
