The IG on International Business and Human Rights is glad to invite all its members and other people engaged to Business and Human Rights to attend the IG Annual Workshop organized back-to-back to the 13th ESIL Annual Meeting “Global Public Goods, Global Commons and Fundamental Values: The Responses of International Law”, that will take place in Naples on 7–9 September, 2017. The Workshop – titled “Public Values and Public Goods: How do They Live in the Intersection of Finance and Human Rights?” – will be held at the Department of Law, University of Naples Federico II, on September 6 at 3 pm. The event will be followed to the IG Meeting.
Despite the centrality that the principle of State sovereignty still holds in contemporary international law, the financial crisis has drawn attention to the role of financial and market actors in relation to human rights. The workshop will address the implications of instruments ranging from the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs) to the 2015 Paris Agreement on Climate Change in international financial law. The objective will be to show how global public values and fundamental values coexist in financial markets.
