  • NLNBHR Workshop “The Gender Dimension of Business and Human Rights” - 9 October 
    The Netherlands Network for Human Rights Research’s working group on business and human rights (@NLNBHR) recently held a workshop on the Gender Dimension of Business and Human Rights, under the auspices of the Asser Institute in The Hague. While it has long been recognised that corporate-related human rights harms affect men and women differently, there has been little attention paid to the gender dimensions within business and human rights scholarship and practice. This workshop sought to bring scholars together to provide an overview of the ‘state of the art’ within business and human rights in relation to gender issues and to facilitate a constructive dialogue around potential spaces for collaboration and paths forward.
