Description
4:40pm – 6:00pm         Advancing Business Actions on Human Rights in Conflict Situations (ENGLISH, FRENCH, SPANISH ONLY)
  • The worst forms of business-related human rights abuse tend to happen in conflict-affected contexts. The 2020 report by the Working Group on Business and Human Rights on conflict situations shows the need for heightened human rights due diligence in conflict situations, while tools and guidance developed by the Working Group, UNDP, and others have begun to elaborate on the specific steps business can take to manage the heightened human rights risks in these contexts. Using examples from recent conflict situations, this session will consider how business can respond, including discussion of the actions business can take to prevent and mitigate harm, the human rights dilemmas businesses must address, and the role of business in fostering an enabling environment for peace and stability.
