In this chapter I aim to critically discuss the burgeoning business and human rights movement from a perspective of managerialism offered by Critical Management Studies (CMS) to illuminate the managerial underpinning of the UN Guiding Principles for Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), and in particular to the core concept of due diligence that falls within Pillar II – the corporate responsibility to respect. Managerialism considers itself as a neutral, technical and pragmatic solution-focused science (Cooke, 2003) essentially concerned about control.
