The Asia-Europe Foundation (ASEF) will be organising a side-event at the 3rd UN Forum on Business and Human Rights on 3 December 2014 (11:30 am – 1:00 pm). The UN Forumwill take place on 1-3 December 2014, in Geneva, Switzerland.
This side-event, Regional Implementationof the Guiding Principles:Lessons from Asia and Europe,is drawn from the discussions of the 14th Informal ASEM Seminar on Human Rights: Human Rights and Businesses, which took place on 18-20 November 2014 in Hanoi, Viet Nam.
The objectives of the Geneva side-event are 2-fold. First, to provide the current state-of-play on the advances made across Asia and Europe to promote the UN Guiding Principles. Second, to exchange best practices for promoting multi-stakeholder cooperation on business and human rights, both within and between the two regions.
ASEF invites all to join this public event. For registration, please check the official websiteof the UN Forum.
