AIUK Memorandum of Evidence to the Joint Committee on Human Rights Enquiry into Business and Human Rights

This submission focuses on the international impacts of business. In particular, Amnesty International contend that the UK state should play a greater role in the governance and regulation of corporations, so as to contribute to the protection of human rights from corporate abuse, whether the abuse occurs in the UK or abroad.

Amnesty International recommends that far-reaching reforms are implemented to the legal and institutional framework in the UK to ensure enhanced governance over the extra-territorial impacts of UK companies.
