Donor: Neighbourhood Programme of the Danish Ministry of Foreign Affairs

Duration of the project: January – June 2007   

BCHR had implemented project trough producing the document containing an overview of development of human rights and business opportunities in Serbia in cooperation with the Danish Institute for Human Rights (DIHR). BCHR established contacts with companies and other stakeholders. Some of these companies participated in the testing of the tool (3 of them), and some of them gave BCHR useful input on the subject of Human Rights & Business in practice. BCHR actively participated in creating localized version of the Quick Check in co-operation with the DIHR, by providing necessary information of the present human rights situation in Serbia, drafting new questions and indicators, forwarding information gathered from the companies. BCHR will continue to put efforts to finding a donor for continuing of the Project.
