The Gap and Human Rights in Sri Lanka

April 26, 2012

Si2 has just published for its members a report on the pending shareholder resolution that will be considered by investors at The Gap at the company’s annual meeting on May 15th. The proponent asks the company to leave Sri Lanka because of the government’s human rights violations, but Gap says it is carefully monitoring its presence in the country and believes it is helping to rebuild the war-torn country, where a 30-year civil war ended in 2009. Si2’s Action Report on the proposal is available here: 2012 SI2 Action Report – Gap – Social (Human Rights).
