How can business support or hinder the process of peace-building after armed conflict? This panel discussion looks at the role of the private sector in countries emerging from conflict. 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.

Panellists:

Professor Sabine Michalowski, University of Essex, School of Law

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

Jo Zaremba, Livelihoods Officer at the UN High Commissioner for Refugees

Yves Nissim, Vice-President, Head of Transformation and Operation in CSR at Orange
