Mapping human rights due diligence regulations and evaluating their contribution in upholding labour standards in global supply chains

By Claire Bright


The purpose of this paper is to facilitate discussions around regulatory measures seeking to encourage or require companies to exercise human rights due diligence in relation to labour issues in the global supply chain. In this perspective, it proposes a mapping of key existing legislation and legislative initiatives at the national level. Even though the main focus of the paper is on Europe, other relevant legislation or initiatives of particular comparative value will be analysed. The ambition of the paper is not to be exhaustive but rather to map key legislation and legislative initiatives in order to gain a better understanding of the current legal landscape. Read the french version here and the English version is available here.
