Business Human Rights – Start up meeting

August 19th at 15.00

At Levende Menneskerettigheder – Human Rights in Action, Nyhavn

Sign-up via greenticket.

 

International human rights standards have traditionally been the responsibility of governments, aimed at regulating relations between the State and individuals and groups. But with the increased role of corporate actors, nationally and internationally, the issue of business’ impact on the enjoyment of human rights has been placed on the agenda of the United Nations.
Think Rights supports this agenda. We are having a start up meeting to establish the new working group for all who are interested in business human rights.

GUEST SPEAKERS
Thomas Trier, external consultant for Deloitte and lawyer specializing in human rights

Representative from Danish Institute for Human Rights (more information will be posted soon)

HOW TO PREPARE
We want you to bring your curiosity and input. We are open to all ideas and we look forward to dicuss the need for action on this topic with you.

If you want to know more about human rights in a business perspective see the UN Guiding Principles.
