Foreign Minister establishes Advisory Group on Business and Human Rights
UN Global Compact Network Australia | June 2, 2017
In announcing the Advisory Group, Australia’s Foreign Minister, the Hon. Julie Bishop MP said the group will “provide expert advice to support government and business to work together to improve human rights, including a review of existing laws, policies and best practices relevant to the [UNGPs].”
The Advisory Group was announced following consultations in 2016 with business led by the GCNA, and with civil society. The consultations found broad support for the development of a NAP, and also highlighted the importance of multi-stakeholder dialogue.
