Event: Business and Human Rights: Do businesses really promote human rights?

by | Jan 16, 2015

Join Oxford Lawyers Without Borders for a critical review of the extent to which businesses promote HR in practice: “Business and Human Rights: Do businesses really promote human rights?”.

Talk of corporate responsibility, pro-bono schemes and language of sustainability and accountability continues to increase but in reality are businesses doing enough to promote and protect Human Rights?

Panel Speakers: Rae Lindsay (Clifford Chance), Peter Frankental (Amnesty International), Catie Shavin (Laboratory for Advanced Research on the Global Economy)

Monday 26 January 5.30 White and Case Room, Law faculty, St Cross Road.
