A panel discussion among an academic, a company representative and practitioners, held on 21 June 2016, hosted by the Oxford Business and Human Rights Research Network and the Business and Human Rights Resource Centre.
How can business support or hinder the process of peace-building after armed conflict? This panel discussion looks at the role of the private sector in countries emerging from conflict. An academic, a company representative and practitioners engage with questions of corporate complicity and accountability in transitional justice settings, as well as the way in which companies may contribute positively to creating peace.
