Human rights Indicators and Private Security Companies.

Measuring Business & Human Rights is a research project that aims to advance the capacity of business managers and corporate stakeholders to assess the extent to which companies meet their responsibility to respect human rights. Measuring Business & Human Rights is carrying out a study to clarify the possible intersection between such initiatives and highlight common issues, in particular through the analysis of the use of human rights indicators. The project seeks to apply human rights indicators to a variety of business activity. This week it looks at Private Security Companies operating in conflict zones or areas of weak governance, both of which are relevant to Myanmar.
