The Universal Declaration of Human Rights is celebrated as the first legal document protecting universal human rights, the Declaration underpins international human rights law, international humanitarian law, international criminal law, international refugee law, and many other areas of international law. Human rights law standards based on the Declaration have now entered the private sphere. Soft law requirements, such as the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises, are being transformed into hard law regulatory and legislative obligations for businesses. Alongside ESG (environmental, social, and governance) and sustainability, these developments are fostering profound changes in the risks to and responsibilities of businesses. The panel of experts will explain this evolving area and explore the implications for lawyers.
