Company: Institute for Human Rights and Business

Founded in 2009, IHRB is the leading international think tank on business and human rights. IHRB’s mission is to shape policy, advance practice and strengthen accountability in order to make respect for human rights part of everyday business.

IHRB’s programmes are organised around key ‘flows’ fundamental to social and economic development, namely: flows of workers, flows of finance, flows of commodities and flows of information. These underpin IHRB’s work on migrant workers and the financial, extractives and ICT sectors respectively.  In addition, IHRB is developing a programme on human rights and mega-sporting events and is a founding partner in the development of the first wide-scale benchmark on corporate human rights performance.
