Save the date! 2 April 2019: Annual Business and Human Rights Symposium, Galway

The Irish Centre for Human Rights at the National University of Ireland Galway will host a half-day symposium on 2 April 2019 entitled Non-Financial Reporting:  Implications for business and human rights in Ireland. The symposium will explore the growing role of non-financial reporting in the context of international and national efforts aimed at advancing business respect for human rights. This event will explore recent international developments in this area and consider the implications in an Irish context of the recent incorporation of EU Directive 2014/95/EU requiring non-financial and diversity disclosures by certain business enterprises. The symposium will bring together a number of legal and policy experts from various fields to discuss the implications of non-financial reporting for business and human rights.

Symposium participants include: Professor Karin Buhmann, Department of Management, Society and Communication, Copenhagen Business School; Professor Anita Ramasastry, University of Washington; United Nations Working Group on business and human rights; Dr Shane Darcy, Senior Lecturer, Irish Centre for Human Rights.
