What business is this of yours?

A glimpse into the Human Rights impacts of big business in Ireland and Mexico. A student project for UCC’s UW0012 Development and Global Citizenship Education Course

For this project students from the Universidad Veracruzana, Mexico and University College Cork, Ireland partnered with Trócaire, the Irish overseas development agency, on their Business and Human Rights Campaign. Trócaire’s campaign highlights important policy changes they wish to make in relation to business and the issue of  human rights.

On this website students from Cork and Veracruz share findings on big business impacts on human rights in both Ireland and Mexico.
