The LSE is organising an intensive two-day course on Business and Human Rights on 4-5 July 2016.

This short course has been designed to offer a wide range of professionals an intensive look at two key business and human rights issues: shareholder engagement and activism and access to remedy for business-related human rights harms. The two-day course will explore each of these issues providing the latest research, up-to-the-minute policy developments and will describe some of the more innovative company practices and civil society approaches in both areas. Through a mixture of lecture, role plays and group discussions, this course will offer participants a unique opportunity to engage with the course teachers who are leading professionals from business, multilateral organisations, civil society and academia in the business and human rights field.

This course aims to introduce you to the latest academic work, most innovative company practices and investor and civilsociety perspectives regarding shareholder engagement and human rights; and the latest academic and policy work, legal developments, company practices and civil society approaches related to remedy for business-related human rights harms.

For further information about the course and to register, please visit the LSE website.
