14th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights: "Human Rights and Businesses"

Addressing the complex relationship between businesses and human rights protection, this publication is based on the recommendations and discussions from the 14th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights which took place in October 2014 in Viet Nam on the topic “Human Rights and Businesses”. Topics cover the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and their application to ASEM members, particularly on state duty to protect human rights against violations by businesses; corporate responsibility and its contribution to human rights implementation; monitoring, reporting and access to remedies; and multi-stakeholder cooperation.

The 14th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights was organised by ASEF, the Raoul Wallenberg Institute, the French Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International Development, and the Philippine Department of Foreign Affairs. It was hosted by the Vietnamese Ministry of Foreign Affairs.
