From 3 – 5 December 2012 Africa Legal Aid participated in the First Annual Forum on Business and Human Rights in Geneva convened by the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights in Geneva.
In July 2011, AFLA launched its Pan-African ‘Human Rights and Business Project’ in Pretoria, South Africa. This was followed by an Africa-wide event, convened by AFLA in cooperation with the South African Law Firm of Webber Wentzel, the Danish Institute for Human Rights and other stakeholders.
Human Rights are Good for Business! From an African perspective, AFLA will explore the challenges and opportunities this presents on the continent.
