    Research Workshop on Business and Human Rights 

    Jointly organized by the BHRights Initiative, IABS and the ESIL Interest Group on Business and Human Rights This interdisciplinary workshop aims to bring together scholars from diverse backgrounds (e.g., international business, legal, management, organization, philosophy, and political science) to share their current research on Business and Human Rights (BHR). 


    The 1.5-day workshop will take place at the University of Geneva (Switzerland) on November 23 and 24, 2019, just before the 2019 United Nations Forum on Business and Human Rights. The annual UN Forum on Business and Human Rights gathers BHR scholars from around the world, representing a diversity of academic approaches to BHR. Tapping into the presence of BHR scholars to present research and provide feedback on papers and draft journal manuscripts, the workshop will contribute to the ongoing evolution of a global academic interdisciplinary conversation on BHR and the development of BHR knowledge.


    It also offers a unique opportunity for scholars to engage across disciplines and receive responses to their research. 


    Format 


    Each paper will be assigned a discussant who will present the paper to the group. The author is given an opportunity to add to the discussant's presentation afterwards and then the paper will be discussed by all the workshop participants.
