One of the ongoing features of this blog has been a literature review, a series of posts that have been dedicated to reviewing the ever-increasing literature (both recent and pioneering) within the field of business and human rights.
However, sitting here at the UN Forum, I’ve realized that there is a gap in much of the material I’ve been covering – I usually just review academic articles. In focusing primarily on academic research, I’ve neglected a huge swath of publications that have been put out by state actors, international organizations, NGOs and other actors that have a direct impact on the field.
The advantage of covering these nonacademic publications is that they often offer a more timely view of the issues than academic articles with longer publication windows. They will also frequently offer a more practiced oriented approach, something that has become increasingly relevant as we move from theory to implementation.
So… to remedy that situation, I offer a New Publications section, a look at recent publications that affect the field of business and human rights.
If you are at an organization and would like me to write about a publication you’ve put out, please email me at firstname.lastname@example.org with your publication and I will review it for the blog.
I’m just going to start after the conference…
