Mary Dowell-Jones (Finance Specialist and Research Fellow, University of Nottingham Human Rights Law Centre) was one of the speakers at the last BIICL’s event (see here). She talked about financial services and the Ruggie framework, a topic on which she will soon have an article published – sharing authorship with David Kinley, Chair in Human Rights Law, University of Sydney, in Radu Mares (ed.), The UN mandate on business and human rights: Siege or cavalry charge? (Brill / Martinus Nijhoff, 2011/2012). But you don’t have to wait to read it: just click here for “The Monster under the Bed: Financial Services and the Ruggie Framework”.
Another of the speakers was Radu Mares himself. He is Senior Researcher of the Raoul Wallenberg Institute of Human Rights and Humanitarian law (Lund, Sweden). His contribution, “Responsibility to Respect: Why the Core Company Should Act When Affiliates Infringe Human Rights”, will appear in the same collection of essays. You can already have a look at it here.
