We are pleased to invite you to an evening panel of experts to discuss the elements of a potential international treaty on business and human rights. The Ecuadorian chair of the UN intergovernmental working group is tasked to present elements of a potential international binding instrument, prior to the group's next meeting on 23-27 October 2017. Our session in London is timed to help inform both the Chair's work and the deliberations of the UN working group, by evaluating the diplomatically realistic elements of a potential treaty.
