2017 United Nations Forum on Business and Human Rights

27-11-2017 to 29-11-2017

On 27-29 November 2017 the Annual Forum on Business and Human Rights organised by the United Nations will take place. This forum is a global platform for yearly stock taking and lesson-sharing on efforts to move the UN Guiding Principles on the Business and Human Rights from paper to practice.

The central theme on the 2017 Forum is “Realizing Access to Remedy”. The programme also features sessions for new audiences and discussions on broader policy trends that consider the role of the business and human rights movement in today’s political and social contexts around the world.

At this forum, FTA and OIE ( International Organization of Employers) will have a joint session “Leverage and Remedy”. The session will explore a key piece of the 'access to remedy' puzzle, leverage and solutions for more effective remedy on supply chain. During this session, they will also talk about the importance on practice and how to apply an abstract policy/principle to real life situations.

Date: 27-29 November 2017
Location: Palais des Nations, Geneva, Switzerland
