Main Article Content

Human Rights Due Diligence has increasingly become more relevant to the airline industry as the global community and business enterprises in other industries have started to acknowledge and embed the corporate responsibility to respect human rights into their respective business operations following the unanimous endorsement of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP) by the United Nations. A case study by ANA illustrates an example of which an airline can carry out the Human Rights Due Diligence as part of its commitment to adhere to responsibility to respect human rights in all aspects of its supply chain. This article proposes that Thai-registered airlines should start to perform Human Rights Due Diligence to improve their human rights situation, despite the lack of existing official report on potential human rights violations.
