See the draft programme here. The Forum will examine 3 main areas:

  1. State leadership and leverage: discussions will focus on the need for Governments to step up their efforts to protect human rights and lead by example in their own business-related operations.
  2. Business leadership and leverage: sessions will unpack the dual concepts of leadership and leverage across the company value chain and in their relationships with various stakeholders.
  3. The role of financial institutions: participants will take a closer look at how human rights intersect with capital markets and explore the responsibility of financiers to drive respect.
