human rights legislation and the enforcement question—a report by Kingsley
Napley LLP and Dr Rachel Chambers
a trend is taking shape towards legislation which goes further than the
reporting obligations of the Modern Slavery Act 2015, in the area of business and
human rights. The EU is currently consulting on a proposed mandatory due
diligence human rights law to be enacted in 2021. These proposals are similar
to those passed in France in 2017 and narrowly defeated in a 2020 Swiss
referendum. Calls are increasing for the UK to follow suit. How could a
compulsory UK human rights due diligence (HRDD) law improve the enforcement and
legal landscape for victims of cross-border human rights abuses? And what
support and powers would a regulator need to be effective? A group of UK civil
society organisations commissioned research on these questions. This article
summarises the key findings of the paper.

question—a report by

published into how to bolster UK competition and consumer laws
Penrose MP has published a set of proposals on updating the competition and
consumer regime in the UK. This follows an invitation from the government to
independently review UK competition rules, with a view to improving the regime
in light of the end of the Brexit transition period and the ongoing coronavirus
(COVID-19) pandemic. The final report, entitled ‘Power to the people’, includes recommendations
on how to adapt to an increasingly digitalised world and how to strengthen the
competition rules when it comes to powerful sector regulators.
