The Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights at Geneva University’s Geneva School of Economics and Management, the Institute for Business Ethics at University of St. Gallen, the Center for Business and Human Rights at New York University’s Stern School of Business, and the Business and Human Rights Journal (BHRJ) are pleased to announce the 6th Business and Human Rights Young Researchers Summit in Geneva, Switzerland, taking place on April 22-23, 2021.
The Summit will bring together approximately 10-15 excellent PhD students and early post-doc researchers (cut-off is one year after graduation) who engage in research in the business and human rights field. The objective is for participants to present their research project in an interdisciplinary, collaborative workshop setting. Scholars from all disciplines are invited to apply including ethics, law, business, and global affairs. Submissions from non-law disciplines are particularly welcome. The papers should outline research-in-progress and must be unpublished at the time of presentation. We encourage submissions from all parts of the world and we strive for gender balance in our selection. Lodging and meals will be provided for the duration of the Summit. Travel stipends will be offered for participants travelling from outside of Europe. For further information on the BHR Young Researchers Summit and on how to join the BHR.
