The aim of this case is to examine ABB’s approach to human rights issues faced in its Sudan operations. This case addresses what factors a compa¬ny should consider in deciding whether to operate in a sensitive (i.e. weak gover¬nance) country; what steps it should take to ensure it identifies and mitigates the risks of working there; how a company can avoid complicity in human rights abuses occurring in a country; and the role of company/stakeholder dialogue The case study covers the period 2004 to the end of 2006.
