The Human Rights Obligations of Business: Research and Practice at the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights
Booking is now open for Meeting Minds Global September 2021 with an exciting programme open to all alumni. Join Oxford Law and the Bonavero Institute of Human Rights at our virtual booth for a session on The Human Rights Obligations of Business.
One of the key working areas of the Bonavero Institute is the growing field of business and human rights. The Institute has initiated a series of research projects investigating the intersection between human rights and business, for example, the use of civil liability for human rights abuses by public and private actors (funded by the Oak Foundation) and the emerging mandatory human rights due diligence legislation across Europe. In the area of modern slavery and human rights, the Bonavero Institute is a member of the new Modern Slavery and Human Rights Policy and Evidence Centre (funded by the UKRI and the AHRC). Further, the Bonavero Institute has organised a series of student programmes, including non-credit courses and an annual student stipendiary fellowship at the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre, as well as many public events on this important topic, mostly in partnership with the Oxford Business and Human Rights Research Network.
- Professor Kate O’Regan (Director)
