The UN Forum on Business and Human Rights is the global platform for yearly stock-taking and lesson-sharing on efforts to move the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights from paper to practice. The central theme of the 2017 Forum is "Realizing Access to Remedy". The programme also features sessions for new audiences and discussions on broader policy trends that consider the role of the business and human rights movement in today's political and social contexts around the world. Ipieca will actively participate in the Forum.
