Event: Corporate due diligence in conflict
April 27th, 2022
Thursday, 19 May 2022 | 9:30 – 11:30 CET
About this event

This session will bring together business and human rights experts from Ukraine, Palestine and based in Myanmar, to discuss the specifics of what human rights and environmental due diligence can – and ought to – look like in scenarios of conflict. The discussion will also take into consideration the existence of non-binding international guidance on due diligence in conflict scenarios, and the contemporary wave of human rights and environmental due diligence legislation across the European Union. 


The ongoing Russian invasion of Ukraine has once again drawn stark attention to the issue of what human rights and environmental due diligence means in scenarios of conflict. The ongoing war highlights the need for enforceable standards of corporate behaviour to ensure that businesses do their upmost to prevent, mitigate and redress human rights and environmental harms associated with their operations and value chains – also in times of conflict.
