À propos de cet évènement

Climate change is one of the greatest threats to human rights of our generation, posing a serious risk to the fundamental rights to life, health, food and an adequate standard of living of individuals and communities across the world.Human rights-based complaints against corporate actors for environmental harms are on the rise globally and across multiple jurisdictions.

Increased competition for natural resources by private companies, sometimes with the complicity of governments, has placed environmentalists and indigenous communities seeking to protect their traditional lands at the forefront of environmental action and made them targets of persecution.

The extending State-tailored human rights to the sphere of transnational business is not normatively desirable,because these actors are not parties to the relevant conventions.

Specifically, the corporate responsibility to respect human rights as enshrined in the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP) has been increasingly interpreted into a duty of due diligence, which requires corporations ‘to identify, prevent, mitigate and account for how they address their adverse human rights impacts’. Some countries have already adopted legislation on this matter, and more are in the process of doing so.

The corporate agents accountable for international crimes is often at the periphery of internationalcriminal justice.The Malabo protocol to the African Court of Justice and Human Rights makes corporations criminally liable for certain international crimes, including trafficking of hazardous waste and illicit exploitation of natural resources,195 but it has not attracted any ratification yet.

The United Nations are hosting a treaty making process conducted in a working group of the Human Rights Council.The extant rights-based climate complaints typically argue that corporate actors have a positive duty to reduce emissions and to contribute to climate change mitigation. Others hinge on the corporate responsibility to disclose emissions, climate vulnerability and stranded assets.

The masterclass is designed for practitioners involved in the impact assessment of business projects who have some experience and knowledge of social impact assessment but want to increase their knowledge of human rights and human rights-based approaches, including: individuals within companies or institutions who are responsible for commissioning and overseeing social impact assessments; and internal and external practitioners that carry out impact assessments

As part of the African Court on Human and Peoples' Rights 15th Anniversary celebrations, and At the tenth anniversary of of the Ruggie Principles and six years on from the 2015 Paris Agreement, this Masterclass is a key moment to explore the links between human rights violations and corporate activity, and the importance of international standards in strengthening respect and protection of human right
