#Human Rights


The principles, and the UN "Protect, Respect, and Remedy" Framework on which they are based, have been widely supported and have emerged as the global standard for human rights in the business context. They include human rights due diligence and management steps that companies should take to meet their responsibility to respect human rights throughout their operations.

Join human rights and business experts Faris Natour and Christine Bader for a discussion on the Guiding Principles, how they are being implemented by companies and governments, and what comes next for the global human rights and business discourse.

Speakers

  • Faris Natour, Former Managing Director, Advisory Services, BSR
