Holding Corporations Accountable for Human Rights Abuses
March 4, 2014 1:00pm - 2:00pm
In all parts of the world, human rights and environmental abuses are taking place as a result of the direct or indirect action of corporations. Yet, victims of corporate-related abuses still struggle to obtain justice and as a result, impunity prevails. There is a growing movement, however, to create, promote and defend legal frameworks to ensure corporations respect human rights in their global operations. This panel will enable us to hear from two leading voices in the movement. Each speaker will also discuss their career path and advice for students on breaking into the field.
