This publication identifies ten key principles to help integrate the management of human rights risks into contract negotiations on investment projects between host State entities and foreign business investors.

This publication has been developed specifically for use by state and business negotiators with a view to ensuring that projects bring benefits to people and that their potential adverse impact is managed appropriately. It should also be of interest to those who are not directly involved in the negotiations, such as oversight bodies, civil society organizations, individuals and communities that may be affected by investment projects, institutional and private lenders, and insurers.

Principles for responsible contracts. Integrating the management of human rights risks into state-investor contract negotiations. Guidance for Negotiators - United Nations Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, 2015 DOWNLOAD
