How can we advance the human rights agenda in private equity? Private capital markets have seen enormous growth in recent years, and their largely unregulated, under-scrutinised nature creates conditions for exploitative practices and human rights risks. But private equity funds have significant leverage over portfolio companies, and investors have a unique opportunity to push for better practice and advance respect for human rights. For this special episode from BHRRC and BSR, Áine Clarke is joined by Paloma Muñoz Quick from BSR, author and corporate accountability advocate Benjamin Cokelet, and Michael Musuraca, Strategic Advisor on ESG and Labour at Blue Wolf Capital.
