Event description

Description

3rd Critical law and corporate social responsibility network event




The corporation and other allied business forms are now required to respect human rights, carry out due diligence on human rights issues and provide a remedy where one is required. Yet the relationship between business and human rights is a complex one. Holding corporations to account where they may directly or indirectly impact human rights is a complex terrain. This event focuses on corporate vulnerability to human rights issues. The notion that the corporation as an idea is also vulnerable. Its vulnerability is often seen in financial terms as susceptible to shocks and banking crisis but it is also vulnerable to reputational issues and increasingly questions about the sustainability of the current neo-liberal conception of the corporation.

The aim is to interrogate various aspects of this complex relationship.

Master Desiree Artesi - Inner Temple
