Human Rights
Date: Wednesday, 03 October 2018 18:00 - 20:00

CONFERENCE: HUMAN RIGHTS AND TRANSNATIONAL CORPORATIONS

Two weeks before the intergovnermental taskforce of the Human Rights Council meets in Geneva for its forth session, it seems particularly appropriate to review the latest proposals on an international legal framework for the governance of business practices and conduct of transnational corporations which, by nature, are beyond the control of national States..

Olivier De Schutter will speak to us by video from Geneva to introduce the subject. 

Maddalena Neglia will recall the broader context on how the debate on human rights and business entities was developed by the UN and the key conceptual and political challenges.

Denise Auclair will present the discussion on a new legally binding instrument on the issue of transnational corporations and human rights and what she sees as the next steps.

Stavros Lambrinidis, EU Special Representative for human rights, will present the contribution of the EU to the issue and the tools the EU has developed to improve the compliance with human rights of corporations domiciled in the EU.

The Association JUSTICE and PEACE will display an exhibition on the mining industry in various parts of the world. The exhibition can be seen from 5:00 pm at the Residence Palace.
