He has circulated a call for inputs which follows. For those interested in this important work this is an opportunity to engage in an effective way. I would be especially interested in the intersection of the United Nations Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights, the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises and the work of Professor Knox. For those committed to a Comprehensive Treaty for Business and Human Rights, this also provides an opportunity to suggest the connections between Professor Knox's work and the substance or principles underlying the treaty effort.
Dear friends and colleagues,
