The Webinar was co-organized by Yaroslav Mudryi National Law University and Polish Institute for Human Rights and Business and supported by the International Visegrad Fund. The event sought input from a range of stakeholders on how to coordinate efforts of companies, civil society organizations (CSOs), state and municipal authorities, international partners to ensure corporate responsibility to respect human rights in times of the war as well as aimed to provide stage for presenting an array of responses by companies to the situation. Also, the purpose was to identify a need for guidance on business conduct in times of war by companies which operate in Ukraine and beyond in line with the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (“UNGPs”). The goal was also to map the key human rights risks that could be / should be addressed by business, identify challenges to build collaboration between business, CSOs, INGOs and other actors to ensure human rights in times of war and to provide an opportunity for different stakeholders to discuss options to coordinate their efforts to ensure respect for human rights in a high risk environment. 144 participants from all over the world registered.
