Colloquium: Business and Human Rights in Asia Pacific

Event Date : 1-3 October 2024


Call for Paper: Colloquium in Business and Human Rights in Asia-Pacific

A complex interplay of economic development, corporate activities, and human rights concerns has characterized Asia Pacific’s business and human rights landscape. As the region experiences rapid growth and globalization, there is a growing recognition of the need to address the impact of business operations on human rights. The region’s rich natural resources, diverse population, and rapidly growing digital economy, supported by digital platforms, have presented unique opportunities and challenges in promoting corporate responsibility to respect human rights.

The academic colloquium on business and human rights in the Asia Pacific seeks to convene scholars and researchers from diverse disciplines, including law, business, management, political science, social sciences, environmental studies, economy, and other disciplines. The colloquium will provide a platform for participants to exchange knowledge and present the latest findings of their current research topics related to BHR in Asia Pacific.

The colloquium also seeks to challenge dominant narratives in the business and human rights discourse while fostering new research agendas and collaboration among scholars and practitioners from different regions and disciplines. The colloquium will be followed by a Postgraduate Workshop for graduates and doctoral students focusing on business and human rights for their thesis/dissertations.
