Upcoming GCNS-HSD-DCAF-ICRC Workshop (14.09.2017, Zurich)
Together with the Global Compact Network Switzerland (GCNS) and the Human Security Division of the Federal Deparment of Foreign Affairs (HSD), DCAF and the ICRC will be co-hosting a workshop on September 14, 2017 from 2.00-6.30pm (Hegibachstrasse 47, 8032 Zürich), entitled “Addressing Human Rights and Security Challenges – From Principles to Practice.”
The workshop will foster a discussion with companies from various sectors about the principal security and human rights issues they face in their operations in complex environments. Participants will learn about Switzerland’s support to relevant Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives (MSIs) and be introduced to existing guidance and resources, including the joint-project led by DCAF and the ICRC. In an inter-active session participants will be able to discuss their sector-specific challenges, share experiences and provide inputs into new and existing tools of the ongoing DCAF ICRC project.
The workshop is particularly interesting for people with legal, Human Rights or security related functions. To register and for more information please access the GCNS platform here.
