IOE paper on State policy responses on human rights due diligence now available in Spanish

Dear Members and Partners,


The IOE released a paper on State policy responses on human rights due diligence in May 2018, which was available in English only. We have the pleasure to inform you that the paper is now available in Spanish too (both versions are available in the side panel).


The IOE paper includes the following information:

  • Executive Summary.
  • What is human rights due diligence?
  • What the UN Guiding Principles on Business & Human Rights recommend about State policy and regulatory measures.
  • Examples of State policy measures.
  • Twelve risks, concerns and challenges regarding the move towards mandatory human rights due diligence laws.
  • The importance of voluntary action and soft-law standards.
  • Suggestions for future policy responses.
  • Annex: Examples of legal developments and other policy measures that have regulatory effect.

This paper is publicly-available. We encourage members to use it in their advocacy and engagement on human rights.


We thank members for their input and help in drafting this paper as well as María Roldán in the IOE Communications team for her help in getting the document translated and proofread in Spanish.


Kind regards,


Peter Hall
Adviser, Human Rights
