human rights & business (and a few other things)

Launch of the Business and Human Rights Practitioners’ Network in London


The Business and Human Rights Practitioners’ Network aims to connect professionals from all sectors in the business and human rights field, particularly early to mid-career practitioners. It acts as a forum for those with expertise in business and human rights to share their knowledge. It aims to promote cross-stakeholder debate on business and human rights in a neutral environment. Its mission is to update practitioners on current issues and positively contribute to problem-solving in the field of business and human rights.

The Business and Human Rights Practitioners’ Network is an initiative founded by practitioners from legal practice, government, academia and civil society. Its founders are: Katherine Tyler (Kingsley Napley LLP), Sarah Macrory (Foreign & Commonwealth Office), Patrick Geary (Children’s Rights & Business Specialist), Francis West (SHIFT), Lise Smit (British Institute of International and Comparative Law), Lise Johnson (Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment), Tim Cooke-Hurle (Doughty Street Chambers), Rachel Chambers (SOAS/University of Connecticut), Lucy Graham (Amnesty International) and me (Dr Nadia Bernaz, Wageningen University).

In a few weeks the Network will be officially launched in London. Details below.
