United Nations Forum on Business and Human Rights

UN Forum on Business and Human Rights
27 November 2023– 29 November 2023,
Geneva, Switzerland

The ICMM team will be at the 12th United Nations Forum on Business and Human Rights hosting the ICMM Members and Civil Society Dialogue. 

After more than 12 years of normative development that has established business and human rights standards in line with the UNGPs, this Forum will reflect on the actual changes that have occurred in the implementation of these standards. These include the actions that States have taken to incorporate these standards through regulation and policies, the extent to which businesses have applied these standards in their practices throughout their operations, and whether judicial and non-judicial remedies in this area are more available and accessible to those negatively impacted by business-related human rights abuses.

This Forum provides an opportunity to reflect critically on the changes which have been made since the UNGPs were adopted, with a particular focus on sharing examples and stories of positive change. Participants will consider whether and to what extent these changes have proved effective, especially for rights-holders, and what still needs to be achieved.
