The first edition of the 'International summer school on business and human rights' will start in few days at Sant’Anna University’s campus in Pisa, from 18th to 22nd June 2018 (each day 9.00 am to 18). The summer school will provide to the almost 30 enrolled scholars (students, researchers, NGO workers, lawyers, CSR experts and other public- and private-sector practitioners) coming from all over the world an understanding of the main challenges concerning the contemporary debate on business and human rights.

A specific focus will be afforded to the content and impact of the 2011 UN Guiding Principles on business and human rights, their implementation at national and international level, as well as to the discussions on the UN negotiations for a Treaty on business and human rights. Lectures, featuring some of the most important scholars of this area, will be organized around three Modules: the State duty to protect human rights; the corporate responsibility to respect human rights; and the victims’ access to remedy.

The summer school, the first in Italy concerning this subject-matter, is the result of the scientific collaboration of Cnr-Iriss with the Sant’Anna School of Advanced Studies, the University of Milan, and the Inter-Ministerial Committee for human rights (CIDU). Marco Fasciglione, researcher Cnr-Iriss, and Co-director of the summer course, will hold two lectures: the first one on 'The first Pillar of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights: the State Duty to Protect' and the second one on 'Unpacking effective remedy under the Guiding Principles'.
