* Introduction of session:

Business and human rights are often considered to be mutually exclusive. Labor, management and government have endeavored tripartite processes and social dialogues but it is difficult to go beyond the zero sum in these discussions.

Over the years, internationally recognized standards in the areas of human rights and labor, such as the Endorsement of UN ”Protect, Respect and Remedy” Framework and the Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights by the Human Rights Council in 2011, , have increased calls for businesses to operate differently.

As corporations go global, challenges related with human rights and labor become complex and affect domestic and international business environment in workplace, supply chain, marketplace (B2C, B2B and B2G etc.), community and governance in various ways.

Are human rights and labor just obstacles to business growth? Can they not become a component of a corporations competitive advantage? How can companies promote good business practices by integrating/implementing human rights and labor into business policies to generate plus sum dialogues and even business cases?
