  • Feedback countries: 'This tool looks promising because it helps to structurally identify sensitivities regarding human rights in our new and existing operations. Country assessments carried out by the Danish Institute give a quick and comprehensive overview of all the human rights issues in a country and pinpoints the top of mind issues for managers. Following this, company assessments help us focus our policies, procedures and performance on these sensitive issues, and provides useful input to dialogue with other stakeholders'.
  • Business case:
    • systematic measuring, monitoring and controling human rights compliance through risk management;
    • Integration in existing company processes by assessment risks in ‘joint ventures’, investments in new countries, etc;
