It is not just governments and political opposition movements who are accused of violating human rights, and who need to be pressed to uphold them. The corporate world, which is increasingly dominant in a globalised society, faces major issues in this area.
To coincide with Human Rights Day 2012 (http://www.ekklesia.co.uk/node/17578), it seems appropriate to highlight a past report from Ekklesia, authored by Savitri Hensman, examining 'Contrasting church attitudes on human rights for all'.
Human Rights Day is observed by the international community every year on 10 December. It commemorates the day in 1948 on which the United Nations General Assembly adopted the Universal Declaration of Human Rights.
