Background
Weapons of Mass Destruction have re-entered the international political stage in recent years. After many years in which there was relatively little attention for these weapons and the agreements dealing with them, chemical weapons were used in Syria, Malaysia and the United Kingdom, and nuclear weapons returned in political rhetoric and arms races as if the Cold War has never ended. Arms control, non-proliferation and disarmament initiatives came under pressure due to increasing international tensions. How to understand and deal with these new dynamics?

The annual Training Programme on Disarmament and Non-Proliferation of Weapons of Mass Destruction (“WMD Training Programme”) organised by the T.M.C Asser Instituut and the Organisation for the Prohibition of Chemical Weapons (OPCW) offers in-depth knowledge on this topic.

Fees:
The fee for this training is €1495. This fee includes lectures, study materials, study visits, water/tea/coffee and lunch during working days, a reception and an opening dinner.

The fee does not cover (international) travel costs, domestic travel to and from airports, (hotel) accommodation, insurance or other expenses. The T.M.C. Asser Instituut can provide prospective participants with a list of suitable hotels in The Hague.

Winter Academy - Doing Business Right: Due diligence as master key to responsible business conductDetails

T.M.C. Asser Instituut

The work of John Ruggie as UN Special Representative on business & human rights was prolific and has had a transformative impact on the regulatory choices taken at various levels to tackle the human rights responsibilities of corporations. In particular, the second pillar of his UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGPs), endorsed unanimously by the Human Rights Council in June 2011, has had a long-lasting influence.

More specifically, this second pillar popularised the concept of human rights due diligence as the central process that businesses need to introduce in order to abide by their responsibility to respect human rights. From thereon, the concept was transplanted into a variety of regulatory instruments, such as the OECD Guidelines on Multinational Enterprises or the French law on the devoir de vigilance. Thus, it became the touchstone of the debates related to responsible business conduct and a primary demand by civil society organisations pushing for stricter regulations of transnational corporations.

Building on this year’s winter academy focused on the UNGPs, the 2020 edition will dive deeper into ‘the pillar of the second pillar’: human rights due diligence. We will retrace the genealogy of the concept, investigate its theoretical underpinnings, and provide the participants with a comprehensive understanding of its practical operation through specific case studies conducted by experienced practitioners. Through a blending of theory and practice, we equip our participants with the necessary knowledge and know-how to engage with the growing practice of due diligence in their daily work at NGOs, corporations, administrations or in academia.

The Winter Academy is an advanced education programme developed by the Asser Institute in the framework of its Doing Business Right project furthering fundamental research and public debates on the responsibilities of businesses in times of globalisation. It is a platform for (future) business and human rights professionals to meet and exchange on the latest developments in the field with a team of hand-picked lecturers.
