#Human Rights


BSR will host this event to discuss current and future challenges and opportunities for Japanese companies in the area of technology and human rights. The event will provide you with a greater understanding of our rapidly growing, ICT-based society and a wide range of new human rights risk drivers and ethical dilemmas. In addition, we will review recent developments in the business and human rights field as a whole. 

This event will include a debrief from the annual RightsCon conference on “the future of the internet and human rights” and feature insights on companies’ human rights performance based on the Corporate Human Rights Benchmark, which the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre recently released.
