Responsible banking. Towards legal obligations for financial institutions?Details

T.M.C. Asser Instituut

The banking sector and financial institutions bear an incredible potential in achieving economic growth while at the same respecting human rights, reducing pollution and hazardous emissions, minimising waste and improving efficiency in the use of natural resources. Spurred by the 2015 Paris Agreement and by the operationalisation of the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, a broader debate over ‘sustainable finance’ has emerged among both institutional and private actors, and reflected in a host of initiatives at the national and international levels.

A consensus is growing that banks as lenders hold a degree of responsibility for the actions of their clients if the latter generate harm on the environment and on human rights. Specialised instruments like the Equator Principles, the work of the UNEP Finance Initiative, and more general standards such as the UNGP and the OECD Guidelines affirm a due diligence obligation for banks to limit the harm associated to their activities and the negative impact on human rights. At the national level, agreements like the Dutch Banking Sector Agreement on international responsible business conduct regarding human rights are a tool to consolidate corporate commitments of responsible conduct in the framework of corporate loans and project finance, and to specifically support the banking sector in preventing and mitigating negative outcomes connected to their operations.

In light of these significant developments, the T.M.C. Asser Instituut organises a roundtable that investigates the evolution, implementation and enforcement of an emerging obligation that banks exercise due diligence and ensure respect of human rights. It will reflect over the strengths and shortcomings of the current regulatory approaches and the novel governance solutions established at the Dutch level. The speakers will highlight social, economical and legal challenges and opportunities lying ahead for public and private partnerships in the transnational regulation of the financial sector.

Speakers

  • Ruben Zandvliet: Advisor Environmental, Social, and Ethical Risk & Policies at ABN Amro

Professor Saskia Sassen delivers Third Annual T.M.C. Asser LectureDetails

T.M.C. Asser Instituut

Each year the Asser Institute invites an internationally renowned jurist and outstanding public intellectual to take inspiration from Tobias Asser’s idea of cultivating trust and respect through law and legal institutions.

Cultivation of Trust
Mutual trust and respect are crucial to the health of any society, especially when it is a heterogeneous one; this holds regardless of whether it is the international society, the European society or the urban society of one of the rapidly growing cities across the globe. A question that Tobias Asser handed down to us is ‘how can law and legal institutions contribute to the cultivation of such necessary trust and respect?’ – a question central to the Asser Institute’s Research Agenda. The Annual T.M.C. Asser Lecture means to bring this question to different contexts and fields of law. It aspires to be a platform for constructive, critical reflection on the role of law in addressing the challenges and (potentially radical) changes of the global society in the 21st century, due to, for example, migration, globalisation and climate change.

 

Keynote speaker
Professor Saskia Sassen

We are honoured that Professor Saskia Sassen will deliver the lecture entitled:

When the Law cannot recognise Extreme Injustice even if it affects Millions
Professor Saskia Sassen is the Robert S. Lynd Professor of Sociology at Columbia University and one of the world’s most prominent scholars on global cities, immigration, and states in the world economy. Inequality, gendering, digitisation and the implications of economic globalisation for nation-states and international law are key variables in her work. She is the author and co-editor of numerous books that have been published in over twenty languages. Her latest book is ‘Expulsions: Brutality and Complexity in the Global Economy’ (Dutch publication by ACCO). For her work, Sassen has received various awards and honours. Most recently, she was made a Foreign Member of the Royal Academy of the Sciences of the Netherlands.

Refugees of ‘economic development’
Her lecture will deal with an emergent type of migrant not formally recognised in law: a refugee not of war, but from particular forms of “economic development” that not only cause environmental destruction, but also have expelled millions of rural smallholders from their land over the last few years. She will elaborate on the need for a new legal regime that recognises this development.

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.
