BUSINESS, HUMAN RIGHTS, THE RULE OF LAW AND THE NEW DEVELOPMENT PARADIGM LUNCHEON

Wednesday, December 3, 2014, 1:00 p.m.- 2:30 p.m.

Palais des Nations, Delegates Restaurant Geneva

On the occasion of the 2014 United Nations Forum on Business and Human Rights being held in Geneva from December 1-3, IDLO is hosting a luncheon to discuss the nexus of business, human rights and the rule of law. The select-gathering is being co-hosted with the Permanent Mission of Pakistan to the United Nations, the Permanent Mission of Italy to the United Nations, and in collaboration with the United Nations Global Compact. It intends to bring together different stakeholders and provides an opportunity for an informal exchange of views and ideas to relate the debate on business and human rights, with the ongoing discussions on the contribution of the rule of law to “sustained and inclusive economic growth, sustainable development, the eradication of poverty and hunger and the full realization of all human rights and fundamental freedoms, including the right to development” (Declaration of the High-Level Meeting of the General Assembly on the rule of law at the national and international levels, 2012).
