On 14 June 2014, the ICJ convened an international seminar on the rights of the child, the business sector and the international legal framework.
The one-day seminar took place in the context of the efforts by the ICJ and other organisations to assist in the implementation of General Comment No 16 of the Committee of the Rights of the Child on State obligations regarding the impact of the business sector on children’s rights. Participants included members of the Committee, staff of the Office of the High Commissioner for Human Rights, UNICEF, the ILO and NGO representatives in the domain.
A summary of the seminar and main interventions is now available.
