Webinar Materials: Human Rights in Complex Emergencies

The DCAF-ICRC team, the Connecting Business Initiative (CBi) and the Office of the United Nations High Commissioner for Human Rights (OHCHR) co-convened a webinar on 12 June. The webinar provided an overview of human rights related issues and concerns, but also tools and guidance that the private sector should be aware of when operating in complex emergencies and addressing manmade hazards. In particular, participants were introduced to the relevance and implementation of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights, as well as the DCAF-ICRC tools on security and human rights in complex environments. The webinar also fed into the Connecting Business initiative’s new workstream on complex emergencies.
