This promises to be an insightful session with the aim of developing a deeper understanding of the complex relationship between business and human rights and the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. Through open dialogue and exchange of perspectives, the speakers will discuss how an environment can be cultivated for businesses to prioritise human rights’ considerations in their operations to ensure sustainable development and the realisation of rights for all.
