Together with the Geneva Centre for the Democratic Control of Armed Forces (DCAF), the International Committee of the Red Cross (ICRC), and the Human Security Division of the Federal Department of Foreign Affairs, the Global Compact Network Switzerland will be co-hosting a workshop on September 14, 2017 from 2.00-6.30pm (Hegibachstrasse 47, 8032 Zürich), entitled “Addressing Human Rights and Security Challenges – From Principles to Practice.”
The workshop will foster a discussion with companies from various sectors about the principal security and human rights issues they face in their operations in complex environments. Participants will learn about Switzerland’s support to relevant Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives (MSIs) and be introduced to existing guidance and resources, including a joint-project led by DCAF and the ICRC, aimed to proactively tackle companies’ security and human rights challenges. In an inter-active session participants will be able to discuss their sector-specific challenges, share experiences and provide inputs into new and existing tools of the ongoing DCAF ICRC project.
The workshop is particularly interesting for people with legal, Human Rights or security related functions.
