invites you to an Open Seminar on Business, Human Rights and CSR
Friday 30/04/2010 3.30 p. m - 6.00 p.m
Room 802 (AUEB Postgraduate Building , Evelpidon 47a)
Title of the Seminar:
Business, Human Rights and Corporate Social Responsibility
Tracing their Relation in Theory and Practice
The Amnesty International example
Aim: To show that the objectives of business and the advancement of human rights are not mutually exclusive.
Specific Objectives: In fact, when done right by complying with ethical standards and codes and implementing CSR programs, business activity can be one of the most powerful drivers of human rights and development in a society. In our presentation, this hypothesis will be grounded both epistemologically and morally but also on the basis of analyzing critically a variety of examples/case-studies. Within this context, Amnesty International, the leading international NGO in human rights, is playing the role not only of a watchdog but also of an important social partner especially through promoting its global Dignity Campaign against social exclusion and poverty.
