The relationship between the global economy and human rights is complex and often difficult. In the last two decades we have seen growing efforts to address existing governance gaps. But despite these efforts, the protection of universal human rights is still insufficient. Unequal power relations between states, the economy and civil society seem to be an important factor.
So how can we challenge structures that favor unequal power relations to the detriment of human rights? In which direction should we continue on the path for a better relationship between the global economy and human rights? Can we transform the free market economy in a fair and respectful one?
