Corporate Social Responsibility in the Netherlands: towards mandatory human rights due diligence legislation

The conference ‘Corporate Social Responsibility in the Netherlands: towards mandatory human rights due diligence legislation’ will take place on 12 November 2021 at the The Hague Humanity Hub.

The regulation of multinational corporations, especially in situations of negative impact, poses challenging questions. Current developments show a transformation of voluntary and sector driven guidelines into legally binding CSR obligations that have extraterritorial application. What will this mean for corporations and the people impacted by their conduct?

Renowned speakers (policy makers, lawyers, academics and NGOs) will discuss this question from different perspectives. Please visit the event page for the full program and registration.

The conference is organized by the Open University as part of its research program ‘Transformative effects of globalisation and law in the Netherlands’ and is a collaboration with the University of Amsterdam, Tilburg University and Maastricht University as part of the joint research program ‘Transformative effects of globalization in law’.

The proceeds of the conference will later be published.
