ICAR-ISHR Thematic Guidance on Human Rights Defenders in NAPs Available in German

The International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR) is happy to share that portions of the Human Rights Defenders in National Action Plans (NAPs) on Business and Human Rights are now available in German.

The Human Rights Defenders thematic template was co-authored by ICAR and the International Service for Human Rights (ISHR) in June 2016. This report provides guidance on how human rights defenders can be consulted in the development of NAPs and how their rights can be addressed through national policies on business and human rights.

The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre (BHRRC), in recognizing the importance of the guidance, has translated Section I "Human Rights Defenders in the Business and Human Rights Context."

The full text of the Human Rights Defenders in NAPs guidance is available in English, French and Spanish.

The translated version is available on the BHRRC website.
