EnRoL! webinar on 'Companies, Human Rights & the EU' with Dr Rachel Widdis & Lise Smit
EnRoL! - The Human Rights & Rule of Law Speaker Series was back last week!
With our guests, we discussed the new EU proposal to require businesses to respect human rights. Thanks so much to Dr Rachel Widdis, Director EMEA at Article One, and Adjunct Assistant Professor at Trinity College Dublin, and Lise Smit, Senior Researcher and Director of Human Rights Due Diligence Forum at British Institute of International and Comparative Law, for excellent presentations!
Dr Rachel Widdis gave a talk about the possible impacts of the proposed EU Directive on Corporate Sustainability Due Diligence while Lise Smit presented the findings of the 2019 study on regulatory options for mandatory human rights and environmental due diligence which she led for the European Commission.
We hope that our webinar sparked some interest for this very important topic and that we will have many more events like this - with brilliant speakers and rich discussion!
