2nd Business and Human Rights Young Researchers Summit

The Business and Human Rights Journal, together with the Institute for Business Ethics at the University of St. Gallen and the Center for Business and Human Rights at New York University’s Stern School of Business have just announced the 2nd Business and Human Rights Young Researchers Summit, which will take place in St. Gallen, Switzerland on 6-7 April 2017. Here are the details from the organisers:


The Workshop will bring together approximately 10-15 excellent PhD students and early post-doc researchers (cut-off is one year after graduation) who engage in research in the business and human rights field. The Workshop aims at sharing and developing their respective research projects in a collaborative manner. The Workshop is interdisciplinary: scholars from all disciplines are invited to apply, including ethics, law, business, human rights, and global affairs.  Submission from non-law disciplines are particularly welcome. The papers should outline research-in-progress and must be unpublished at the time of presentation.

We encourage submissions from all parts of the world and strive for gender balance in our selection. We aim at offering travel stipends to participants travelling from outside of Europe.

To apply, please submit an abstract of no more than 600 words to florian.wettstein@unisg.ch and dbaumann@stern.nyu.edu. Please include your name, affiliation, contact information, and curriculum vitae. For questions please contact Berit Knaak at berit.knaak@unisg.ch.

The deadline for the submission of abstracts is November 1st, 2016. Candidates whose submissions are selected for the Workshop will be notified no later than December 15th, 2016. Full papers will be due March 16th, 2016 and will be distributed to all participants for review before the Workshop. Each participant is expected to formally comment on one other paper.
