Belarus: Businesses have the responsibility to respect human rights in the context of the crackdown on protests – Belarus
AMNESTY INTERNATIONAL PUBLIC STATEMENT
The precarious human rights situation in Belarus requires businesses, equally foreign and national, to exercise particular diligence when operating in the country. As laid out in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UN Guiding Principles), business enterprises have a responsibility to respect human rights wherever they operate in the world.
