With human rights groups and businesses locked in a stalemate, the challenges of regulating harmful corporate practices in some of the world's most difficult regions have long seemed insurmountable. In 2005 the United Nations appointed John Ruggie to examine the problem and identify a path forward. Ruggie produced his "Protect, Respect and Remedy" framework and "Guiding Principles" to implement it, and these "Ruggie Rules" were endorsed unanimously by the UN. They are being incorporated by governments and companies around the world and are employed by human rights and workers' groups. Just Business shows how this powerful transformation came about and what it means for governments, businesses and people everywhere.
