Academics, practitioners and company representatives will engage with questions of corporate complicity and accountability in transitional justice settings, as well as discuss the way in which companies may contribute positively to creating peace.

Professor Sabine Michalowski, University of Essex, School of Law

Irene Pietropaoli, Business and Human Rights consultant at Amnesty International in Myanmar
