The Ambedkar Principles contain a set of employment principles and additional principles to address economic and social exclusion of Dalits in South Asia.
They intend to acknowledge the degree of historic injustice against Dalits in South Asia and aim to compensate for this through affirmative action, in line with international human rights standards, although not to the detriment of other excluded groups.
IDSN recommends that companies apply these principles in business operations.
