Corporate Responsibility Theme at Swedish Forum for Human Rights

Scandinavia’s largest forum for human rights is to be held at the Swedish Exhibition & Congress Centre for the first time. It will take place in November and the programme includes interesting talks, debates, workshops and seminars – all intended to promote the development of ideas on human rights and their application in Sweden and internationally.

“It feels great to bring the Forum for Human Rights to Gothenburg at last. In the run up to the forum we have had some excellent support from the City of Gothenburg, Region Västra Götaland, the County Administrative Board and local stakeholders among the general public. The forum is bigger than ever this year and our big strength is all the unique meetings, numerous programme events that are free of charge and the breadth of visitors who will learn more about human rights, from upper secondary students to politicians and civil servants from authorities and departments,” said Caroline Matsson, Project Manager.

One of the sub-themes of the Forum for Human Rights this year is Corporate Social Responsibility, which tackles issues regarding the relationship between big business and human rights. The debates will range from making businesses accessible to people in Sweden today to asking whether CSR is the right way forward.

“Many people associate the term human rights with developing countries that are hit by conflict and crises. But this subject is just as important nationally and locally in our everyday lives,” said Matsson.

The Swedish Forum for Human Rights takes place on 12-13 November. For more information visit www.mrdagarna.nu
