Dr. Guy Harpaz, Prof. Sascha-Dominik Bachmann, and Pini Miretski are organizing an exciting international workshop on Business and Human Rights – Networks of Transnational Governance that will be held on February 19-20, 2014, at the Hebrew University of Jerusalem, Israel.
The workshop aims to bring together scholars and practitioners, in order to examine the various interfaces among networks of transnational regulation designed to regulate the respect of businesses for human rights. We shall seek to understand the interfaces and linkages between the various regulative initiatives in this developing field. In the workshop we will question whether emerging networks are replacing the roles previously taken by the state, whether the privatization of regulation is supplied by transnational networks and orchestrated by states, or whether an evolution of polycentric governance is complementing an entrapped international legal order.
