UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights

The UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP) contains the ‘Protect – Respect – Remedy Framework’.

.

Ruggie Framework

Special Representative John Ruggie is the driving force this behind UNGP and the Framework.

That is why the framework sometimes is called the 'Ruggie Framework'.

Alignment with ISO 26000

The ISO 26000 core subject “Human Rights’ is fully aligned with the UN Guiding Principles.

ISO 26000 experts (f.e. Sandra Atler) worked for more than three years closely together with John Ruggie to align.

The use of the ISO 26000 concept ‘sphere of influence’ in the ISO 26000 Human Rights core subject is aligned with the Ruggie Framework.

Child Labour Platform

See: www.unglobalcompact.org/Issues/Labour/Child_Labour_Platform.html

The Child Labour Platform is a multi-sector, multi-stakeholder forum for sharing experiences and lessons learned in eliminating child labour, particularly in the supply chain. The Platform will deliver training and capacity support, link with global and local initiatives against child labour, and foster practical action that can make a difference in affected communities.

An initiative of the UN Global Compact Human Rights and Labour Working Group, the Platform is co-chaired by the International Trade Union Confederation (ITUC) and the International Organisation of Employers (IOE), and coordinated by the ILO and the Global Compact Office.

International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC)

The ILO’s International Programme on the Elimination of Child Labour (IPEC) was created in 1992 with the overall goal of the progressive elimination of child labour, which was to be achieved through strengthening the capacity of countries to deal with the problem and promoting a worldwide movement to combat child labour. IPEC currently has operations in 88 countries, with an annual expenditure on technical cooperation projects that reached over US$61 million in 2008. It is the largest programme of its kind globally and the biggest single operational programme of the ILO.
