Community-driven initiatives

Due to the vast power inequality and information gap between communities and companies, decisions affecting communities' lives and rights are too often made without their participation and input.  When companies do bring communities to the table, these processes are mostly top-down, directed and led by the company.

Community-driven initiatives are a response to these company-led processes.  They involve significant participation by and direction from communities affected by corporate activities, at all stages from design to implementation. 

This section aims to support communities and NGOs working with them in the field of business & human rights.
