Human Rights and Impact Assessment
18 April 2015 - 19 April 2015
Florence, Italy, Europe
Register online: http://conferences.iaia.org/2015/human_rights_and_ia.php This two-day, intermediate level master class outlines the human rights issues associated with large projects (with an emphasis on the extractive industries), and provides participants with practical ways to operationalise the corporate responsibility to respect human rights as established in the United Nations Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, which were developed by Prof John Ruggie (who received the IAIA 2014 Global Environment Award). The course seeks to bring human rights issues into the impact assessment field of practice and, by using integrated impact assessment methods, will provide an effective way to identify the human rights issues of projects. The master class is designed for practitioners involved in the impact assessment of private sector projects who have some understanding and knowledge of social impact assessment methodologies and practice and who want to increase their knowledge of human rights issues. This can include: those individuals within companies or institutions (e.g. financial institutions) who are responsible for commissioning and overseeing impact assessments; and internal and external practitioners that carry out impact assessments. The course has been developed as a partnership between the Danish Institute of Human Rights and the Community Insights Group.
