“The United Nations Association of Australia (Victoria Division) is holding its sixth Business and Human Rights Workshop for 2014, entitled Addressing adverse human rights impacts: Managing human rights related complaints, disputes and grievances, on Monday 25 August, 2014 in Melbourne.

Facilitated by Kate Macdonald, Lecturer in the School of Social and Political Sciences at The University of Melbourne, this workshop looks into the remediation aspect of the corporate responsibility to respect human rights, as explained the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. More specifically, it seeks to provide an overview of the different remediation mechanisms available to address adverse human rights impacts, including how to assess and ensure their effectiveness.

Bringing together experts and practitioners from across business, government and civil society, the workshops provide a unique learning forum on how to integrate human rights considerations into everyday business practices, including through partnership and collaboration.
