In recent times, there has been a significant improvement in the way companies understand and conduct their CSR practices. Many companies now actively engage in social initiatives, environmental issues, local employment and stakeholder engagement. Increasingly, human rights issues are recognised as something which must be addressed both strategically and operationally. More specifically under human rights issues, risks from security related human rights are more frequently identified and mitigated. However, this is not always the case and it is not unusual for these risks to be overlooked or ignored, particularly in a more benign security environment.
By examining two very different security risk environments this paper will illustrate how easily security related human rights risks can go unnoticed unless care is taken very early on in the risk management process. In addition, the paper will discuss key tools designed to help mitigate the risks and who is suited to implement these measures.
The paper will show that it is possible to identify and mitigate security related human rights risks as long as companies adopt the correct approach and support.
