Academic conferences create opportunities to shape emerging academic research on business and human rights.
We participate in academic conferences by presenting our original research and sharing our perspective in the the academic dialogue on business and human rights issues.
We are also currently co-organizing two annual academic conferences that bring together scholars in the interdisciplinary business and human rights field. Both events are co-organized with other schools that have strong business and human rights programs as well as the Business and Human Rights Journal, the leading academic journal in the field.

The University of Washington School of Law, Rutgers Business School, the Rutgers Center for Corporate Law and Governance, and our Center at NYU will hold the second Business and Human Rights Scholars Conference on September 16-17, 2016 at the University of Washington School of Law in Seattle. Conference participants will present and discuss scholarship at the intersection of business and human rights issues. The deadline for submitting paper proposals for the 2016 conference closed in May. In 2016, we received over 100 applications and we selected 35 projects to be presented at the conference.
