Voices from the Region: Introducing the CEECA Resource Hub on Business & Human Rights

We are pleased to inform you about the launch of the CEECA Resource Hub on Business and Human Rights, a collaborative space for activists, practitioners, business persons, governments, affected communities, and other stakeholders to share their insight and experience on topics related to business and human rights. The hub serves Central and Eastern Europe and Central Asia.

The CEECA Resource Hub features both introductory and region-specific information on business and human rights topics such as legal frameworks, human rights due diligence, grievance mechanisms, and forms of remedy for abuse. Each page allows users to contribute their own resources and insights, making every page of the platform a collaborative space. Each country in the region also has its own page.

The hub also features an elearning on business and human rights, designed to be accessible for those who do not have a background in BHR language and frameworks. A members directory allows users to find others working on BHR in the region and ask them questions.

The CEECA Resource Hub will be officially launched on October 13, 2021. The launch event will feature stories from activists in the region. You can find more information via this link: bit.ly/3As0Fjb

This launch event for the CEECA Resource Hub will showcase the work of activists working on a wide range of issues in the region, including environmental rights, labour rights and access to remedy. It was focused on stories of how they have fought for justice, awareness and accountability. It also explores the stories of the communities they work alongside. The event will be available in both English and Russian.

Participants include:

  • Crude Accountability (Central Asia)
  • Ecolur (Armenia)
  • Belarusian Helsinki Committee (Belarus)
  • CEE Bankwatch (region-wide, with significant work in the Balkans)
  • Oil-Workers Rights Protection Organization (Azerbaijan)
  • Ecoclub NGO (Ukraine)

The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre has developed the hub in partnership with the Central & Eastern European Business & Human Rights Association (CEEBHRA), which was co-founded by PIHRB’s president of the Board, Beata Faracik. The Danish Institute for Human Rights has kindly provided us with resources and guidance.
