IHRB and the International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (ICAR) are pleased to invite you to the UN Guiding Principles Five-Year Anniversary Event.
June 16th 2016 marks the five-year anniversary of the unanimous endorsement of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights by the UN Human Rights Council. This event will provide a forum for dialogue and debate on what has been achieved in the area of business and human rights since the UNGPs were adopted, where gaps in protection continue to exist and what the most appropriate next steps are in the movement toward greater corporate accountability for human rights.
We expect a lively discussion among leading area practitioners in business and human rights, and look forward to reflections from a special guest.
Please join us for this multi-stakeholder dialogue, and a reception afterward, hosted by Clifford Chance. Kindly register below, and an agenda will follow.
