Maplecroft research spells out the scale of human rights abuses worldwide – and the role of multinationals in fighting against it

People’s understanding of what constitutes human rights is different around the world. But in no country is it acceptable for multinational organisations to treat people poorly just because they are poor.

Among the UN’s standard definition of every human being’s entitlements are the right to life, liberty and security. No one should be subjected to degrading treatment and everyone has the right to recognition before the law. However, human rights abuses and poverty tend to be interrelated, as research by risk consultancy Maplecro shown here demonstrates.
