Posted by on May 1, 2012 in Business, Human Rights | No Comments

The Institute for Human Rights and Business and Tourism Concern are convening a multi-stakeholder roundtable to explore the challenges and human rights responsibilities faced by the Tourism Industry.

The event will explore what corporate human rights due diligence means for the tourism industry, building on Tourism Concern’s new briefing:

Why the tourism industry needs to take a human rights approach: The business case

Speakers will discuss the need and the advantages to the sector in aligning with international human rights standards, in particular, the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights and how this new framework provides useful tools for achieving a sustainable future for the industry.

Confirmed participants include representatives from Kuoni, ABTA, Tribes Travel, the International Business Leaders Forum, the International Labour Organisation, Water Aid and Minority Rights Group.

The roundtable will be of interest to those working in the hotel, hospitality, leisure and travel sectors and associated industries. There has been considerable interest in the event already and places are by registration only.
