Does the World Need a Treaty on Business and Human Rights? Weighing the Pros and Cons

-

Location: Notre Dame London Law Centre, One Suffolk Street, London, SW1Y 4HG

University of Notre Dame Law School and Business & Human Rights Resource Centre cordially invite you to their first annual London human rights speaker series event.

Currently the question of a binding instrument on business and human rights is the topic of intense international debate. A proposal at the UN for a Treaty has received the support of over 70 governments and over one hundred regional and international NGOs. At the same time, it has received a high degree of scepticism by many experts, developed country governments, and international business associations.

Join us to discuss this issue with a high-level panel of experts!

Main speakers:

Introduction of Topic: Professor Doug Cassel, Notre Dame Law School

Proponent: Professor Chip Pitts, Lecturer in Law at Stanford Law School; Advisor to the UN Global Compact

Commentator: Professor Sheldon Leader, Essex University

Sceptic: Chris Esdaile, Leigh Day

Commentator: Dr. Nadia Bernaz, Middlesex University

Reflections: Michael Addo, UN Working Group on business and human rights

There will be 30 minutes for questions & answers, and a post-event reception for all who wish to attend

Please RSVP to Sam Whannel: whannel@business-humanrights.org by 1 May 2014
