Global Rule of Law Exchange 3rd annual conference

2nd May 2018

Time: 08:30-18:00 (Registration open from 08:00)
Followed by a reception

Venue: Jones Day, 21 Tudor Street, London ECY0DJ

This conference seeks to create greater awareness about the business rationale for private sector involvement in SDG16 (peace, justice and sustainable institutions), and discuss how the private sector - along with other key stakeholders - can play an influential role in meeting this goal, and reflect on ways forward.

Through case studies and examples, conference participants will get a good understanding of how the private sector can engage with SDG16, its role, and the kind of challenges that emerge as part of this.

This conference will showcase existing initiatives, tools and instruments to help business engage in SDG16. By linking with other organisations, including the UN/UNGC, the Pathfinders for Peaceful, Just and Inclusive Societies (supported by CIC-NYU), etc, conference outputs will contribute to informing policy discussions on the relationship between the private sector and SDG16.

This conference is organised by the Global Rule of Law Exchange. Law firm Jones Day is the Global Partner for the Exchange.
