Description

People
IHRB has a presence in Berlin, Bogotá, Brussels, Doha, Geneva, London, Nairobi, Washington D.C. and Yangon. IHRB’s expert staff and research fellows carry out our work around the world. Our strategy is guided by an International Advisory Board, chaired by Prof. John Ruggie under the patronage of Mary Robinson, and our finances are overseen by a Board of Trustees.

Work
IHRB serves as an independent voice on human rights and business issues around the world. We produce in-depth reports, practical briefings and regular commentaries. We provide trusted and impartial advice to governments, businesses and international organisations. We bring together leading experts with diverse stakeholders to discuss timely subjects on the business and human rights agenda.

Partners
Partnership is core to IHRB’s mission. Our partnerships range from one-off topical convenings to multi-year applied research projects. We work directly with business leaders, government officials, international organisations, civil society and others to evaluate the effectiveness of policies, practices and responses to build the capacity of organisations committed to taking on their human rights challenges.
