We influence global norms.
Rules that dictate social and economic policy considerations are often developed at the international level. To ensure economies respect the rights of all people, not just powerful corporations, global governance structures must allow for greater consideration of human rights issues.
We see the value in utilizing a multitude of global governance bodies to push governments to make stronger commitments in relation to promoting and protecting human rights against corporate interests.
We then work to ensure that these norms and standards are implemented at the national level.
