Student scholarships available for the Doing Business Right winter academy

Published 11 December 2019

Five partial scholarships are available exclusively to outstanding master students and PhD candidates to attend the upcoming Doing Business Right winter academy. The 2020 edition of the winter academy, taking place at the Asser Institute from 27-31 January 2020, will dive into human rights due diligence.

In this training programme, we will retrace the genealogy of the concept of due diligence, investigate its theoretical underpinnings, and provide the participants with a comprehensive understanding of its practical operation through specific case studies conducted by experienced practitioners. Through a blending of theory and practice, we equip our participants with the necessary knowledge and know-how to engage with the growing practice of due diligence in their daily work at NGOs, corporations, administrations or in academia.

The 2020 DBR winter academy features academics, corporate representatives, legal experts and professionals from international organisations. It is a platform for (future) business and human rights professionals to meet and exchange on the latest developments with a team of leading experts in the field.
