Sharing the Lessons Learned: Business&Human Rights, Conflict Sensitivity, Business&Peace

This roundtable, jointly organized by FES Geneva, the Quaker United Nations Office and the Geneva Peacebuilding Platform, aimed to bring together experts from the human rights, environmental rights and peacebuilding communities to share their experiences in engaging with businesses.

Both the rights- based and peacebuilding approach have become increasingly established, with ambitions growing from respecting basic human rights and adhering to the “do-no-harm” principle to contributing to just and fair development and building peace with local participation. The aim of this workshop was to share key lessons from these different approaches and identify points of collaboration and mutual reinforcement.
