Getting Down to Business: Uncovering the Roles Played by Enterprises in Enabling and Preventing Atrocity Crimes

On the evening of Wednesday, June 28, 2017, the Auschwitz Institute for Peace and Reconciliation (AIPR) launched its most recent addition of the Sheri P. Rosenberg Policy Papers in Prevention series. The second entry in the series, entitled “Getting Down to Business: Uncovering the Roles Played by Enterprises in Enabling and Preventing Atrocity Crimes,” was written by Ms. Tatiana Gos, AIPR’s Academic Program Officer for Latin America.

The paper works with existing and developing standards, research, and scholarship in the field of atrocity prevention and the growing domain of corporate human rights responsibility. While each of the two spheres have, until this point, developed rather independently of one another, “Getting Down to Business” takes a holistic approach to bridge the existing gap between them and forge links that allow for more effective and pragmatic analysis moving forward.
