Exploring the Implications of the Protect, Respect and Remedy Framework for Business and Human Rights for Canadian Business Operating Abroad.

Join CBSR and a special guest from John Ruggie’s team for a provocative discussion on the topic of business and human rights. This session will explore the Respect Pillar of the Protect, Respect, Remedy Framework and its implications for Canadian businesses operating abroad. You will hear how some Canadian companies have addressed the issue of human rights in their operations overseas and some lessons learned from their experience.

This webinar will provide an initial exploration on this topic which will be covered in greater detail at CBSR's annual Summit on October 26, 2011. Plan to join the morning workshop - Understanding and Implementing Ruggie's Second Pillar: Corporate Responsibility to Respect, for a deeper dive on this topic.
