Winter Academy - Doing Business Right: Corporate social responsibility in transnational law and practiceDetails

T.M.C. Asser Instituut

The T.M.C. Asser Instituut is offering a new Winter Academy in the framework of its recently launched research project on Doing Business Right. The Winter Academy investigates the multiple ways through which the law encourages, steers and, at times, even mandates corporate social responsibility in our interconnected environment. As globalisation has changed the way we consume, work and live, transnational corporations impact the lives of multitudes of people across the globe. The question then becomes how to ensure that corporations do so responsibly, and particularly without disruption to livelihoods through environmental damage, labour abuse, human rights violations or threats to health and safety. 

Programme
This five-day Winter Academy provides a comprehensive overview of the legal mechanisms ensuring that multinational corporations conduct their business activities responsibly. The programme will feature renowned academics and experienced practitioners in the fields of international and European law, private law, corporate social responsibility, business and human rights. They will address the general theory underlying the many legal routes to corporate social responsibility, as well as the practical implementation of some of the most frequently employed legal mechanisms by analysis of several case studies. 

What will you gain?

  • Advanced theoretical knowledge of the various multilevel legal domains spurring corporate social responsibility;
  • Insiders’ perspectives on how numerous CSR mechanisms work in practice and at a firm level;
  • Networking opportunities with speakers coming from academia, the corporate world, international organisations, law firms, and NGOs.

U zult tijdens de Masterclass ervaren dat zowel verbale als non- verbale signalen, die we uitzenden vaak ‘vervuild’ zijn.

Tijdens de Masterclass passen we deze slagkracht en overtuigingskracht toe in uw eigen manier van communiceren. Hierdoor zult u verandering merken tijdens toespraken, het voorzitten van vergaderingen en het geven van presentatie. Daarbij in eerste instantie geen oefening aan de hand van uw dagelijkse praktijk maar aan de hand van passages uit beroemde toneelstukken. De technieken en inzichten uit het toneelvak worden ingezet om vaardiger, rustiger, meer ontspannen en meer zelfverzekerd, en dus effectiever om te gaan in communicatie met anderen.

Human Rights, Transitional Justice, and Environmental Protection Summer SchoolDetails

Leiden University

The Human Rights and Transitional Justice Summer School focuses on a different theme within the field of human rights and transitional justice each year. This year's focus will be on environmental protection. 

This year’s Summer School on Human Rights and Transitional Justice addresses the confluence of two global crises: environmental protection and the response to mass atrocity.  Protection of the environment and natural resources is a key element in building a positive future after mass atrocity, but the law and practice in this area is unsettled and rapidly evolving. How can protecting the environment help build a positive peace?  Where do the laws of armed conflict fall short in preventing and remedying environmental harm?  Should the anthropocentric assumptions of international criminal law be challenged in the context of transitional justice and environmental harm after mass atrocity?  The Summer School builds on the years of effort by the International Law Commission on armed conflict and the protection of the environment, as well as a multi-year project centered at Leiden University on jus post bellum and the protection of the environment.  Covering a range of pressing contemporary topics such as where environmental harm is potentially prohibited by international criminal law, legal frameworks for environmental justice, mechanisms of transitional justice, investments in extractive industries in the transition to peace, and case studies on issues such as environmental protection and the transition to peace in Sierra Leone and the UN Compensation Commission.

The Human Rights, Transitional and the Protection of the Environment after Conflict Summer School offers a unique opportunity to learn from well-known and influential academics and practitioners in the field of human rights, transitional justice and environmental protection in the aftermath of conflict. The course also provides for plenty of opportunities to network with fellow students and practitioners from all over the world.
