The road to fair, sustainable supply chains and access to justice

Speaker tour | 4 June | the Hague

Activists from Southeast Asia and sub-Sahara Africa will have a dialogue with Dutch members of parliament and civil society about human rights abuses linked to corporate activities and the need for a solution, such as the binding treaty on Business and Human Rights. These activists are involved in assisting victims of corporate abuse in their fight for justice in their respective countries. In many cases these violations are connected to the oil and gas, or palm oil supply chains, and involve violations such as land grabbing, exploitation or pollution of the environment. Members of parliament will be invited to share their solutions and discuss this with the activists and attendees. 

The event takes place on Tuesday the 4th of June from 11:30 – 13:00 (doors open from 11:00 onwards) in Nieuwspoort, the Hague (Lange Poten 10). The event will be followed by a lunch consisting of luxury sandwiches and a photo exposition by Kadir van Lohuizen.
