As part of the celebrations marking the Institute's 50th Anniversary year in 2008/9, we are pleased to announce a series of evening lecture events on rule of law themes, showcasing the broad scope of the Institute's work across a range of topical legal issues, inviting fresh thinking and debate.
Business, the International Rule of Law and Human Rights
What is this event about?
The event will deal with issues of the legal responsibilities of corporations for human rights violations both within their home country and in other countries, including actions by subsidiaries. It will consider some of the UN and industry standards dealing with the responsibilities of governments, and the proposals for change in this area. Each speaker will deal with the real issues on the ground for corporations and governments, as well as the relevant international human rights standards. The broader issues of the importance of the international rule of law for business activities will also be explored.
