ABSTRACT
Subject of research: It has long been recognized that business can have a profound impact on human rights. Companies do not have the same legal duties as States under international human rights law. However, there has been a long-standing debate about what responsibilities companies do have for human rights. Purpose of research: In the age of globalization which results in developments of transnational and multinational corporations there is a need to define companies’ obligations in the area of human rights and determine the timeless rules that can be accepted by every culture. Methods: The main method used in the paper is formal-dogmatic. The paper focuses on analyses of the non-binding provisions of international human rights law especially on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights.
