LHRC and ICAR Release Comprehensive Study of Business and Human Rights Law and Policy in Tanzania

November 23, 2016

Today, the Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC) and the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR) are pleased to jointly release the “Shadow” National Baseline Assessment (NBA) of Current Implementation of Business and Human Rights Frameworks in Tanzania.

This document represents one of the most exhaustive studies of Tanzanian laws, policies, regulations, and standards that pertain to business and human rights at the national level.

LHRC and ICAR hope all stakeholders, including Tanzanian civil society groups, academia, government representatives, business groups, and investors, will engage with this tool, add to it, and apply it in their efforts to address business-related human rights harms.

The “shadow” NBA for Tanzania can be downloaded here.
