Risk analysis

We research and monitor global and sectoral trends within the decent work and human rights fields to help clients undertake due diligence to identify and manage the risks associated with their policies and commitments, as they apply within their own operations, their supply chains, and their investment and donor relationships.

Key to understanding trends and risk is close monitoring of the perspectives of actors including inter-governmental bodies, multinational brands, trades unions and civil society campaigners. We do this through screening public statements and maintaining close relations with social partners and others stakeholders.
