International human rights standards have traditionally been the responsibility <strong>of</strong> governments, aimed at<br />

regulating relations between the state and individuals/groups. In view <strong>of</strong> the increased role played by<br />

corporate actors at both the national and international level, the United Nations human rights machinery is<br />

considering the scope <strong>of</strong> business' human rights responsibilities and exploring ways <strong>for</strong> corporate actors to<br />

be accountable <strong>for</strong> the impact <strong>of</strong> their activities on human rights. However, the practical meaning <strong>of</strong> the link<br />

between business and human rights remains unclear <strong>for</strong> many and there remains substantial debate over<br />

which human rights can and should apply to business, and in what way.<br />
