Ethics Talk Live: Human rights

JANUARY 31 · Virtual from HELSINKI

 15-16 EEST

  • What is human rights – and why is it so difficult?
  • Business and human rights form a complex landscape
    • Who is responsible: the state or businesses?
    • Why should / must companies take a greater responsibility for human rights?
  • New regulatory requirements: EU directive and the new German law passed in June 2021
    • Companies should report breaches. What will this entail in practice?
    • What has UK Modern Slavery Act achieved?
    • Is new regulation a good or a bad thing?
  • Issues abroad and at home
    • Can you operate in e.g. China without being complicit in human rights violations?
    • Even “local” smaller companies have dependencies and relations to China (e.g. through supply chains)
    • Our home countries are not innocent either: restaurants selling pizzas for 5 eur, construction workers living in barracks and working around the clock, berry pickers have their passports taken away, cleaning companies and beauty salons.
