Business, Human Rights and Law in Transnational Context

Date: January 16-17, 2014

Time: 8:30 am -6 pm

Location: Oakham House, Ryerson University

Website: https://www.ryerson.ca/criminaljustice/business-human-rights-conference/index.html

Description: High-profile corporate infringements of human rights -notably in the developing world-- have initiated discourses about how to better regulate transnational business activities. Through the collaborative efforts of a range of stakeholders, including governments, business leaders, and civil society, we have developed a series of important global standards, including the UN Global Compact and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. There remain outstanding questions, however, including what are the respective roles of government, business, local communities, and civil society in operationalizing these and related human rights norms.

Set against the backdrop of recent global and domestic legal initiatives, this conference explores how we can use national, transnational, and international law to prevent human rights abuses in areas of special significance to Canadian business, including: mining and resource extraction, Indigenous and environmental rights, labour and worker safety, anti-corruption and bribery, and international trade and development. Speakers include world-renowned scholars and representatives from: The Canadian Chapter of the UN Global Compact, Parliament of Canada, Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada, MiningWatch Canada, The Justice and Corporate Accountability Project, The Alliance for Bangladesh Worker Safety, Sears Canada, Bennett Jones LLP, Baker & McKenzie LLP.

Ryerson CSR Institute Talk: Business Use of Regulations to Create & Protect Markets

In an era of diminishing public resources and investment, corporations and associations have turned to regulation to protect and promote their market shares and profitability or advance their interests. Special interest groups in turn have developed unique tactics and strategies to combat these approaches. The net result is a very different public policy environment.

“Law as Escape Valve:  How Canadian governments use courts and the law to avoid wearing tough decisions” with Business/Politics Insider Hershell Ezrin.   

TO REGISTER, CLICK HERE: 

http://RyersonCSR-Institute-Law-as-Escape-Valve.eventbrite.ca

Date:  Wednesday, October 9, 2013
Time: 4 pm to 5:30 pm (please be on time)
Location: Room TRS 3-099, (ninth floor), TRSM.
Free if registered on eventbrite.

Judicial enquiries, references, and Royal Commissions have all become commonplace as political tools to either increase or take off the public heat or to allow governments to implement policy changes, whose support they could not otherwise explain to their political core supporters. Sometimes, such as with the Gomery inquiry and the current Montreal construction contract debacle, these tools can cause more harm than the governments setting them up ever anticipated.  What are the rationales for moving in this direction and how do governments balance the risks and rewards? Does business support for government "escape valve" tactics constitute socially responsible behaviour?

This event is co-sponsored by the Ryerson Corporate Social Responsibility Student Association (Ryerson CSRSA), the Ryerson Commerce and Government Association (RCGA), the Ryerson Law Centre, and the Department of Law and Business in Ryerson University

This talk explores social media and media coverage, crisis management and how corporations have to now defend their brands and internal activities in a totally different way in an era of social media, and how government central policy makers listen to social media today the way they used to listen to polls (but now at warp speed). This event is co-sponsored by the Ryerson Coroporate Social Responsibility Association, the Ryerson Commerce and Government Association, the Ryerson Law Centre, and the Department of Law and Business in Ryerson University's Ted Rogers School of Management.

CSR & Labour in Developing Countries: ILO’s Better Work Programme as New Governance Form

This event is co-sponsored by the Ryerson Law Research Centre, the Ryerson Centre for Labour Management Relations, the Ryerson Commerce and Government Association (RCGA), the Ryerson MBA CSR Student Committee and the Ryerson Bachelor of Commerce Corporate Social Responsibility Students Association (CSRSA).
