From the 1984 Bhopal Union Carbide chemical leak that killed thousands, to Rio Tinto’s 2020 destruction of Juukan Gorge, major abuses of human rights in the past few decades have prompted renewed attention and regulation of companies’ viz-a-vis human rights – the basic freedoms and protections that belong to all of us.
Should a company respect human rights? What should the consequences be if a company fails to uphold the human rights of their employees or the communities in which they operate?
This panel will explore the roles and responsibilities of business in the realisation of human rights, and how companies are being held accountable (or not) for their human rights record. Importantly, this session will also include discussion on what we can do to encourage greater corporate respect for human rights.

This session will provide context and direction for you to be authentically involved in peacebuilding – as clubs and as individuals. You will be presented with an overview of peacebuilding theory, the ways that initiatives seek to transform drivers of conflict from respected practitioners in this field.
This will be complemented with examples from panelists involved in initiatives to connect Rotarians with peace efforts globally underway through the Rotary Peace Fellow Alumni Association. This practically-oriented session will prompt you to self-reflect on what you might best be able to bring to the pursuit of peace, and provide you with guidance on how to connect with professionals in this space and seek out initiatives to support.
