Description

The International Learning Lab is a network of academics, non-governmental organizations, national human rights institutions (NHRIs) and procurement professionals across Europe and the United States working together with the aim of facilitating the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) in the context of public procurement. The International Learning Lab on Public Procurement and Human Rights was established by the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR-United States), the Danish Institute for Human Rights and the Harrison Institute at Georgetown University Law Center.

The Learning Lab’s global network will be a platform and mechanism for: experience-sharing among procurement actors on approaches to integrating respect for human rights; generating knowledge about public procurement law and policy and human rights; producing and disseminating tools and guidance to build capacity to integrate human rights issues among procurement professionals; and promoting coherence between procurement and human rights in international and regional frameworks and initiatives.
