December 6 @ 1:15 pm - 3:00 pm
WCC 3036 Room

This non-credit, informal workshop explores the theory and practice of the rising multidisciplinary field of “business and human rights.” Until very recently, conventional wisdom held that no bridge was adequate to span the chasm that separated business law and human rights.

In this workshop, we will examine several of the key points of contestation in this emerging terrain.
