UN Working Group expert consultation on the role of business in transitional justice contexts

Date & Time: Thursday 23 September, 13:00 to 15:00 CET, 12:00 to 14:00 BST

As part of its ongoing work focused on business and human rights in conflict-affected areas, the UN Working Group on Business and Human Rights is developing a guidance note that will include practical recommendations for those engaged in the design and implementation of remediation processes in transitional justice contexts. To help inform the forthcoming guidance, the Working Group invites relevant experts (including academics, business, civil society, government and UN representatives) to participate in a consultation via Zoom. The discussion will address questions such as the relationship between reparations, development and peacebuilding; how to incentivize business participation in transitional justice; understanding business responsibility; practical implications for non-judicial grievance mechanisms; broader reflections and lessons learned.
