About this event

June 2021 marked the 10-year anniversary of the introduction of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs). This milestone provides an important opportunity to reflect on the progress made in Australia, to identify gaps in policy, law and practice, and explore possible solutions.

As part of this anniversary the Australian Human Rights Commission and Australian Human Rights Institute has collaborated on a new report that serves as practical roadmap for government, business and investors as they look to increase their commitment to UNGP implementation. We also hope it can serve as an advocacy tool for the diverse range of actors working to embed respect for human rights into business activities.

This event will bring together key stakeholders from Australia’s business and human rights community to launch the report and discuss next steps.

Organiser The Australian Human Rights Institute

Organiser of 10 years of UN Guiding Principles on Business & Human Rights in Australia

The Australian Human Rights Institute at UNSW Sydney is dedicated to interdisciplinary research in three priority areas; business and human rights, health and human rights and gender justice.

By bringing together researchers in different disciplines, the Institute will produce innovative solutions for human rights violations. It will have a meaningful social impact, with responses to rights challenges that can be applied by governments, industries, and communities across the globe.

The Institute builds on the outstanding legacy of the Australian Human Rights Centre, which since its establishment in 1986, has increased public awareness and academic scholarship on human rights through research, public lectures and events, and publications.
