Allen & Overy publishes inaugural issue of The Business and Human Rights Review

18 October 2012

Businesses are coming under ever-greater scrutiny by the media and non-governmental organisations on human rights issues.

The Business and Human Rights Review, published by Allen & Overy's Human Rights Working Group, brings together some of the world's leading experts from business, academia, the law, non-governmental organisations and international bodies to explore issues pertaining to the relationship between human rights and business.

The inaugural issue includes interviews with Mark Harding (Barclays General Counsel), Pam Jestico (HSBC), Shami Chakrabarti (Liberty) and Clare Algar (Reprieve) as well as articles by Professor Conor Gearty and Dr Jonathan Bonnitcha (both of the London School of Economics), Allen & Overy LLP lawyers and representatives of the Office of the United Nations High Commission for Refugees, on topics ranging from the influence of human rights on investment treaty arbitration to the role of women on corporate boards.
