Remarks by Siobhán McInerney-Lankford

  • Siobhán McInerney-Lankford (a1)

Extract

The nexus of human rights (HR) and finance has gained increased attention in recent years, particularly since the UN Human Rights Council's adoption of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights in 2011. This article argues that human rights can and should be integrated in financing (“an integrative approach”), and proposes an approach based on five elements: (1) defining human rights considerations in explicit terms; (2) explaining the challenge we are confronted with in attempting to integrate human rights into financing; (3) articulating a justification for such integration; (4) identifying the nature and source of the applicable norms and human rights obligation to be integrated; and (5) outlining an applicable methodology and a practical operational approach.
