World Economic Forum Annual Meeting Davos 2018: Spotlight on business & human rights

Over 2500 leaders from business, government, international organizations, civil society and academia have come together in Davos for the World Economic Forum (23-26 January 2018). Under the theme "Creating a Shared Future in a Fractured World" the aim is to set an agenda for greater multistakeholder collaboration as a way of addressing current political, economic and societal challenges. 

In this context, CEO and corporate activism, including for the protection of civic freedoms and human rights defenders, is gaining support and prominence. At this year's Forum, 'Standing up for Social Progress' plenary event, will discuss the business case for CEO and corporate activism.
