NAP Development Process
South Korea has a chapter on business and human rights within a broader human rights national action plan.
South Korea adopted a Human Rights National Action Plan containing a chapter on business and human rights on 9 August 2018. A provisional English translation has kindly been provided by the Korean House for International Solidarity.
More information and a breakdown of the NAP by issues will be available soon.
The NHRCK presented its recommendations for a National Action Plan (NAP) on Business and Human Rights to the South Korean Government in July 2016. The recommendations focus on promoting the state’s obligation to protect, the enterprise’s responsibility to respect, and access to remedy on business and human rights.
The recommendations outline nine tasks for the government, including: ensuring government policy coherence in relation to business and human rights, institutionalising human rights management in public organisations, considering human rights in public procurement, and supporting non-state-based grievance mechanisms.
On 9 August 2018 the State Council adopted the Human Rights National Action Plan which contains a chapter on business and human rights.
