Microphone How the pandemic should be managed to minimise human rights impact

Phil Bloomer, executive director of the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre, talks with Innovation Forum's Ian Welsh about where the burdens of the pandemic are likely to be felt as business finds a way through the crisis. They discuss some of the challenges that are emerging and how government relief for companies should be managed. 

Bloomer points out the potential for humanising of supply chains as consumers become more aware of where the essential products that they rely on come from and how they are produced.

Listeners should note that this interview was recorded on 31st March amid fast-moving events.
