The world of business has woken up to the ideas of corporate social responsibility and human rights. There is growing discontent over the manner in which governments and businesses run slipshod over communities and stakeholders. Public anger has led to delays and disruption of business projects, and the threat of financial liability on account of legally recognized human rights violations is a very real one. With the globalization of communication, activism and even the arm of law, company boardroom decisions have a new reality to account for: corporate responsibility is becoming synonymous with corporate accountability.

Clear. Hold. Build.: Hard Lessons of Business and Human Rights in India offers an unprecedented, must-do checklist for human rights, and for responsible, and sensible, business -planning and policy- making. Journalist, socio-political analyst and bestselling author Sudeep Chakravarti marries historical research and analysis of current developments with extensive interviews and on-field research. He speaks to senior executives, policymakers, activists, lawyers and local communities across the conflict zones of India to present a ringside view of the present and future of business and human rights. Chakravarti breathes fresh understanding into some of the biggest human rights cause celebres: Vedanta, Tata Steel, Posco, Kudankulam, Sipcot, as well as numerous forgotten names, places and people that continue to haunt twenty-first century India.

Juxtaposing the local with the global, Chakravarti brings home the import of domino-effect developments, such as in neighbouring, mineral-rich Myanmar; Bangladesh in the wake of the Rana Plaza disaster; implications of the United States Supreme Court ruling on use of conflict minerals; and the United Nations' Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Clear. Hold. Build. is a ground-breaking work that highlights avoidable battle lines and seeks to change the way government, businesses and communities talk with each other, treat each other.
