Mr Greg Vickery AO, Chair of the Law Council’s Business and Human Rights Committee (BHRC), attended the 8th Annual United Nations Global Forum on Business and Human Rights, which was held in Geneva between 25 and 27 November 2019.

The forum is designed to promote implementation of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). This year’s theme was ‘Time to act: Governments as catalysts for business respect for human rights’. A packed three-day program included seventy sessions on diverse topics for attendees to choose from, with the following key takeaway messages.

Two other members of the BHRC were in attendance: Professor Sarah Joseph, who was a panellist on the session about emerging human rights in the digital sector; and Ms Vanessa Zimmerman, who was one of the forum organisers. Congratulations to all involved and our thanks to Mr Vickery for reporting back to the Law Council.
