A breakfast meeting of the Corporate Social Responsibility Committee will take place for an informal discussion on "Current trends in business and human rights regulation". During the breakfast we will: • Provide a high-level overview of emerging governmental strategies to encourage or require companies to manage human rights risks • Discuss the pros and cons of common legislative strategies such as mandatory due diligence requirements and mandatory reporting requirements, which have important implications for a broad range of companies • Encourage discussion among the attendees on the various topics presented • Provide an opportunity to meet peers who work on business and human rights compliance issues, catch up with fellow IBA CSR Committee members and, for prospective members, a chance to learn more about our work.
