Human Rights: A New Frontier for Public Procurement

By Claire Methven O’Brien

Claire Methven O’Brien recently wrote an article, entitled “Human Rights: A New Frontier for Public Procurement,” which was published by In Procurement magazine. The article provides an introduction to the topic of public procurement and human rights. Specifically, it includes:

  • Examples of human rights abuses that are linked to government supply chains;
  • A discussion of the obligations of States to protect against such abuses; and
  • Information about new tools and resources to support public as well as private buyers in identifying and managing human rights risks in supply chains.
