Exploring Elements of Effective Remedy: Focus on Women’s Rights

28 November 2017, Geneva (Switzerland)

As part of the UN Forum on Business and Human Rights 2017, CORE will be involved in a parallel session on effective remedy and women’s rights.

The session will consist of three panel discussions. CORE, along with Womankind Worldwide, UK Gender and Development Network, AWID, Landesa and other women’s advocacy organisations, will host a panel discussion on ‘Women’s rights and land intensive investment: What does meaningful access to remedy look like?’

Ashoka University’s Genpact Centre for Women’s Leadership, UN Global Compact, UN Women, and Women @ the Table, will also host a panel discussion on ‘Business-related impacts on women’s rights – challenges and strategies for addressing them’.

The third panel discussion on ‘Women workers in global supply chains: operational-level grievance mechanisms and access to remedy’ will be hosted by University of Manchester’s Business and Human Rights Catalyst, Ethical Trading Initiative and Women Working Worldwide.
