Did you know that international arbitration is part of the global movement to protect human rights implicated in business activities? That, to enable businesses to meet their responsibility under the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights 2011, various experts in foreign investment, arbitration, human rights and supply chains launched the Hague Rules on Business and Human Rights Arbitration in December 2019? And that these rules can be used ad hoc or through international arbitration institutions such as the Permanent Court of Arbitration?
Fierville Ziadé is thrilled to invite you to hear a diverse panel exchange views on whether international arbitration is an effective remedy to resolve human rights disputes arising in connection with business activities.
The panellists are Professor Ursula Kriebaum (University of Vienna), one of the preeminent drafters of the Hague Rules; Aurélien Hamelle, General Counsel of Total, which must ensure the respect of human rights throughout its entire business chain; and Professor Jean-Baptiste Racine (University of Paris II – Assas), whom the Hague Academy of International Law invited to speak about “arbitration and human rights” during its next summer course.
Panellists will share their insights on the advantages and challenges of human rights arbitration for business and affected parties.
