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.

Confirmed panelists:

  • Robert McCorquodale (Chair), British Institute of International and Comparative Law
  • Rae Lindsay, Clifford Chance law firm
  • Carlos Lopez, International Commission of Jurists
  • Elodie Aba, Business & Human Rights Resource Centre
  • Luis Espinosa-Salas, Counselor, Permanent Mission of Ecuador to the UN

This event is co-hosted with the Business & Human Rights Resource Centre, the University of Notre Dame Law School, and the University of Essex Business and Human Rights Project.
