Report on Business and Human Rights in Myanmar Roundtable
On 17 April 2013, the Australian Council of Trade Unions (ACTU) and the Centre for Employment and Labour Relations Law (CELRL), Melbourne Law School, co-hosted a roundtable on business and human rights in Myanmar. The roundtable brought together government, worker and employer representatives, academic experts, and civil society groups with an interest in issues around Australian investment and human rights in Myanmar. The discussion focused on the human rights challenges of operating in the country and the role of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (the UN Guiding Principles), the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (the OECD Guidelines) and other international standards, with a particular focus on the rights of workers.
