Since it launched in March 2013, the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights remains the first-ever human rights center based at a business school. Since then, the Center has worked to advance a "pro-business, high standards" model for business and human rights. We believe in the power of business to create positive change in society. We also believe that companies in the same sector should abide by common standards for human rights.
In November 2017 the Center published "Harmful Content: The Role of Internet Platform Companies In Fighting Terrorist Incitement and Politically Motivated Disinformation." It examines what Google, Facebook, Twitter and Microsoft need to do to fight terrorist incitement and politically motivated disinformation.
