In the coming weeks those sitting Part II will see enhancements to the feedback received in the exam report and we will be adding this to the Part III report in due course.
From 1997-2001, Ruggie served as United Nations Assistant Secretary-General for Strategic Planning, a post created specifically for him by then Secretary-General Kofi Annan. His areas of responsibility included assisting the Secretary-General in establishing and overseeing the UN Global Compact, now the world’s largest corporate citizenship initiative, and proposing and gaining General Assembly approval for the Millennium Development Goals. Ruggie broadly contributed to the effort on institutional reform and renewal for which Annan and the United Nations were awarded the Nobel Peace Prize in 2001.
In 2005, Annan appointed Ruggie as the UN Secretary-General’s Special Representative for Business and Human Rights, tasked with proposing measures to strengthen the human rights performance of the global business sector. In June 2011, the UN Human Rights Council, in an unprecedented step, unanimously endorsed the “Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights” that Ruggie and his team developed through extensive consultations, pilot projects and research.
Core elements of the Guiding Principles have been adopted by other international standard-setting bodies, national governments, businesses and more.
John Ruggie will be missed; however through his efforts, there are many who will continue his work long into the future.
