UN Forum on Business and Human Rights

The UN Forum – an annual gathering on business and human rights – will take place from 26-28 November 2018 at Geneva, Switzerland.

It will attract more than 2,000 participants from government, business, community groups and civil society, law firms, investor organisations, UN bodies, national human rights institutions, trade unions, academia, and the media.

Over three days, participants take part in over 60 panel discussions on topics that relate to the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (the United Nations “Protect, Respect and Remedy” Framework), as well as current business-related human rights issues.

The Forum is positioned as the foremost event to network, share experiences and learn about the latest initiatives to promote corporate respect for human rights.
