BHRIGHT is an interdisciplinary centre located in RMIT’s College of Business and Law.
BHRIGHT is the home for research on business ethics, corporate accountability and social and sustainable enterprises at RMIT University.
Our current research is organised around six main themes in business and human rights:
Illuminates the role that business plays as a protagonist in increasing or mitigating climate change and its human rights impact.
Assesses and advances the potential of the new business and human rights agenda to address gender equality, and intersectional oppression.
The human right to health provides a unique lens through which to tackle major questions of law and social policy pertaining to business conduct.
Tackles some of the biggest human rights issues emerging from the increasing pervasiveness of tech in our daily lives.
Examines the various roles and impacts businesses have in situations of armed conflict and peace-building efforts around the world.
BHRIGHT is the first Centre for Business and Human Rights in Australia.
