Monica Feria-Tinta to speak at the 2018 UN Forum on Business and Human Rights

Monica Feria-Tinta will be joining Mr. Surya Deva, Chairperson of the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights, as speaker on “New Perspectives on overcoming hurdles for parent company liability”, at the 2018 UN Forum on Business and Human Rights to be held at the Palais de Nations in Geneva.

The panel will look into the topic of parent company liability in the wake of cases such as AAA v Unilever, Lungowe v Vedanta and Okpabi v Shell, and will discuss the rise of mandatory Human Rights Due Diligence legislation across different jurisdictions, as well as recent developments on treaty-making in the area of business and human rights.

The UN Forum, to take place from 26 to 28 November, is the world’s largest annual gathering on business and human rights with more than 2,000 participants from government, business, law firms, investor organisations, UN bodies, civil society and the media.

The UN Human Rights Council established the Forum in 2011 to serve as a global platform for stakeholders to ”discuss trends and challenges in the implementation of the Guiding Principles and promote dialogue and cooperation on issues linked to business and human rights.” It is guided and chaired by the Working Group on Business and Human Rights, as per Human Rights Council resolutions 17/4 and 35/7.
