Week of 16 November 2020
The business and human rights community came together this week: we shared insights, swapped lessons learned and confronted our challenges – all through our screens
2020 marks the ninth anniversary of the UN Human Rights Council’s adoption of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, as well as the ninth UN Annual Forum on Business and Human Rights. The Forum is an opportunity for governments, companies, investors, community groups, civil society, trade unions, law firms, national human rights institutions and academia to come together and discuss trends, challenges, opportunities, and the future of business and human rights. The theme of this year’s Forum was “Preventing business-related human rights abuses: The key to a sustainable future for people and planet.”
