What every Australian business needs to know about international humanitarian law.
Globalisation continues to offer new opportunities for businesses to expand operations and value-chains into new territories around the world. These include unstable and insecure environments and countries affected by, or prone to, armed conflict. As a result, the corporate sector faces new and unfamiliar risks. This publication aims to assist Australian businesses in understanding their risks, rights and responsibilities under international humanitarian law. It has been specifically designed to provide an overview for managers and executives, and supplements existing human rights-oriented guidance documents.
