Plenary and interactive sessions:
4 December 2008 – Global Challenges of our time; a Business and Human Rights Framework
The Universal Declaration of Human Rights was adopted by the United Nations General Assembly in Paris on 10 December 1948, so the Paris location has been chosen as a deliberate tribute to this.
Building on the success of the Business and Human Rights Seminars organized in London in 2003, 2004 and 2005 (www.bhrseminar.org), this year’s Seminar is organised by a multi-stakeholder International Steering Committee. The Steering Committee is coordinated by the secretariat of the Business Leaders Initiative on Human Rights (BLIHR), a programme to help developing the corporate response to human rights and Entreprises pour les Droits de l’Homme (EDH), a francophone business-led initiative inspired by the work of BLIHR.
