ASEAN Baseline Study on CSR and HR revise

This Baseline Study on CSR and human rights is part of the Five Years Work Plan of the AICHR,1 which would allow the Commission a better understanding on the emerging human rights‐related issues pertaining to corporate conducts in the ASEAN region. According to the Baseline Study’s terms of reference, the specific aims of this exercise are to, inter alia: (1) identify state practices in facilitating or encouraging CSR, including business respect for human rights, in each of the AMS, ranging from policies and processes to regulation and enforcement measures; (2) highlight CSR practices of ASEAN‐based businesses as they relate to human rights; (3) explore the activities of various actors involved in the promotion of CSR, particularly with reference to human rights; (4) assess the level of engagement and dialogue between CSR promoters, AMS, and business entities, and identify areas where further engagement would be mutually beneficial, as well as tools and mechanisms that may help to facilitate such engagements; (5) identify various mechanisms, judicial and non‐judicial, that would allow the victims of human rights abuses of corporate conducts to seek effective access to remedy; and, finally, (6) formulate initial recommendations to the region as a whole, including further works to be carried out, to develop a common framework to accelerate the promotion of CSR and human rights in the region.
