The paper focusses on the role of business in respecting and supporting children’s rights.  It aims to provide guidance to foreign and Myanmar companies on what children’s rights mean in the context of doing business in Myanmar. 

The Briefing Paper uses the framework of the ten ‘Children’s Rights and Business Principles (CRBP)’, developed by UNICEF, the UN Global Compact and Save the Children. MCRB has put these into a Myanmar context, including an analysis of relevant Myanmar laws as well as international standards.

In compiling the recommendations in the paper, MCRB held a consultation attended by foreign and Myanmar businesses, child rights experts, NGOs working with children, and UN agencies. The paper is accompanied by a list of relevant ‘linked initiatives’ concerning children’s rights and business which are being undertaken by other organisations in Myanmar.
