Justine Nolan presents paper at American Society of International Law Human Rights Interest Group Workshop at UC Berkeley

On November 25, Justine Nolan participated in the American Society of International Law's Human Rights Interest Group Workshop at the Boalt School of Law, University of California Berkeley in the US. She presented a paper titled "Refining the Rules of the Game: The Corporate Responsibility to Respect Human Rights”.

The paper discusses the process of re-regulation whereby state and non-state actors are utilising a combination of public and private regulation to improve the framework for corporate human rights compliance. The regulation of corporate activity with respect to human rights requires a multiplicity of stakeholders and a very nuanced mix of public and private regulation that may be difficult to replicate easily across different sectors, states and cultural boundaries. 

Justine will be attending the UN Business and Human Rights Forum in Geneva on Dec 3-4th where she will be meeting with a variety of participants including UN representatives, NGOs, academics and companies in furthering her research.
