Event Details

The annual UN Forum on Business and Human Rights is the global platform for stocktaking and lesson-sharing on efforts to move the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights from paper to practice. It attracts more than 2,000 experts, practitioners and leaders for three days of dialogue between Governments, business, civil society, affected groups and international organisations on trends, challenges and good practices in preventing and addressing business-related human rights impacts.

The theme of the 2019 Forum is, “Time to Act: Governments as Catalysts for Business Respect for Human Rights.”

The Forum is guided and chaired by the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights and organised by its Secretariat at the Office of the UN High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR), which handles the registration process. Please register here.
