Updating the Resource
Centre Digital Platform
The Business & Human Rights Resource Centre is at a critical point in its
development. Our digital platform is home to a wealth of information on
business and human rights, but hasn’t had a visual refresh for a number of
years.
We will soon be updating the site to improve its usability and better serve
the thousands of people that use our site to support their work.
Please take an advance peek at our new look, and let us know what you
think!
Thank you,
Alex Guy, Digital Officer

been impacted and repatriated as a result of the Covid-19 pandemic.
The economic fallout from the pandemic will include an estimated 195
million lost jobs, including an estimated 5 million in the Middle East,
many of these held by migrant workers. There are serious concerns that
without proper controls or procedures, repatriated workers may not receive
with due wages, compensation and benefits, and that millions may be
