Guide on national action plans on business and human rights now available in German

Portions of the guide 'Human rights defenders in National Action Plans (NAP) on Business and Human Rights' have been translated into German by the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR).

This joint publication published by ISHR and ICAR contains a checklist for how States ought to engage defenders in NAP development, as well as a template of questions which States ought to incorporate into their National Baseline Assessments (NBAs) prior to NAP development, in order to assess and develop policies which impact on the participation and protection of human rights defenders.

It was launched in June at a side event and is available in English, French and Spanish and portions of it are now available in German thanks to ICAR's contribution.
