In Focus


Welcome to B-HRD’s In Focus section, which highlights particular situations of business-related abuse, along with efforts to hold those businesses accountable.

The In Focus situations have been selected to support the efforts of human rights defenders acting in diverse regions and industries. By placing the work of particular defenders in focus, each situation also provides users with an in-depth perspective of key developments in human rights advocacy, creating an opportunity to learn more about specific struggles, strategies, and successes in corporate accountability campaigns.

We welcome company responses to issues featured in our In Focus situations, or in any other part of our website. To send a response,contact us.
