The UN Forum is the world's largest annual gathering on business and human rights with more than 2,000 participants from government, business, community groups and civil society, law firms, investor organisations, UN bodies, national human rights institutions, trade unions, academia and the media.
Over three days, participants take part in 60+ panel discussions on topics that relate to the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (the United Nations "Protect, Respect and Remedy" Framework), as well as current business-related human rights issues.
The Forum is the foremost event to network, share experiences and learn about the latest initiatives to promote corporate respect for human rights.
Ipieca will be hosting a session on Human rights due diligence as well as co-sponsoring an evening business reception. Ipieca secretariat will be present for the duration of the event.
