Business and Human Rights Developments: From the UN Principles to Due Diligence Laws

The panel will address the UN principles on Business and Human Rights, self-regulation policies and national plans, and the transition to due diligence legislation and the challenges on the implementation of the principles and the new legislation, compliance and enforcement issues, as well as the importance of a joint effort from both public sector and private sector in advancing those principles.

“In 2011, the United Nations Human Rights Council endorsed the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, developed within the UN “Protect, Respect, and Remedy” framework. Guided by this framework, the panel will examine the important role of States and business enterprises in protecting human rights and upholding the Rule of Law, as well as the challenges in ensuring a right of access to effective remedies. The speakers will also explore the evolution from the UN Principles and self-regulation mechanisms to national due diligence laws, such as the novel French Duty of Vigilance Act passed in 2017 and the recently approved German Due Diligence Act, as well as the global impact of the EU’s approach.”
