Samenvatting: 

This publication offers practical guidance to companies about the international human rights framework and how business fits into it. It discusses the recognized understanding of the "core human rights categories": *The rights protecting life and security of the person; economic, social and cultural rights; civil and political rights; * The collective rights and indigenous peoples' rights; * International crimes; and * Labour rights. It also includes in our guide a Human Rights Compliance Assessment (HRCA) tool to provide company representatives an idea on how to apply the human rights in their business decisions and operations. It uses the diagnostic assessment tool that was produced by the Danish Institute for Human Rights. As an independent research institute that focuses on Sub-Saharan Africa, the authors elaborate a bit more on the African context. They assess the African human rights instruments, provide examples of good practises by business enterprises, which operate in Africa and design reports with in-depth analysis of the supply chain responsibility of business enterprises in Africa.
