What does respecting human rights mean for information and technology companies? What role do they play in democracies and how can they deal with non-democratic regimes? And, given recent events, what is their role during conflict and war?

This event, hosted by the University of Bath’s Centre for Business, Organisations and Society and the Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights, will consider what is working, and what needs to work, in the context of human rights and technology companies.

At a time when a spotlight is firmly placed on the (ir)responsibilities of social media companies, platform organisations, search engines, apps and websites, we will reflect on themes of responsibility, ethics and democracy in the digital age.

This event will take place on Zoom.
