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.
