My aim here is to explore the links between two leading reasons for having a binding treaty on business and human rights: the goal of achieving policy coherence and the goal of achieving mutual assurance between states. These two objectives can interact with one another, and their interaction is not usually investigated. Doing so can help shape the design of a treaty in a more promising direction than it might otherwise take. It will also reveal how a treaty is a more urgent need than is often acknowledged. The text is followed by proposed sections in a treaty that reflect the argument.
