The Australian Human Rights Centre and Allens Arthur Robinsons invite you to a discussion on

Corporate responsibility: failed rhetoric or future remedy?

Corporate responsibility encompasses corporate ethics, workplace issues, and environmental as well as human rights concerns. In the context of the current financial crisis and moves by the Federal government to explore improved protection for human rights for Australia, the seminar will consider whether corporate social responsibility initiatives are effective or detract from notions of corporate accountability. The role of business in protecting human rights will be a key focus of the seminar.

The seminar will include speakers from the Office of the United Nations Special Representative on Business and Human rights, the Australian Human Rights Commission, the Cambridge Programme for Sustainability Leadership, Allens Arthur Robinson, the Australian Human Rights Centre and the Gilbert & Tobin Centre for Public Law.
