Belgian NBA Business and Human Rights

Actors within the scope of the NBA

The UNGPs on business and human rights apply to all states and to all businesses, regardless of their size, sector, location, ownership and structure (UNGP, 2011, p1). As the NBA follows the logic of the UNGPs, it covers the operations of a wide range of Belgian and international actors, structured below according to the state actors and related institutions (Pillar I), businesses (Pillar II) and access to remedy (Pillar III). Two subgroups are added: one relates to the actors involved in the policy coherence domain; and one involves the actors engaging with conflict-affected and high-risk areas (CAHRAs).
