Olivia Windham Stewart


I am an independent business and human rights specialist; Deputy Director of the Responsible Contracting Project; Deputy Director of the Business and Human Rights Law Program; and Senior Fellow at Rutgers Law School, New Jersey, USA. In addition to my focus on contracting, I work on a range of projects to enhance corporate accountability and supply chain due diligence across sectors. 

Prior to working independently, I worked on the Labour Rights team at Laudes Foundation (formerly C&A Foundation) and at Impactt, a business and human rights consultancy based in the UK, with offices in China, Bangladesh and India. I have worked extensively in production countries around the world, particularly in South and South East Asia and I hold an MSc with Distinction from SOAS University, London. I am based in London.
