The Human Rights and Business Academy (HURBA) in collaboration with the Indian Law Institute Delhi (ILI) will organize an intensive certificate course on “business and human rights” (BHR) during 3-8 July 2017.
The course will be held at the ILI in New Delhi.
The course aims to expose law/business/management students, lawyers, civil society

After completing this intensive course, participants should be able to have an informed understanding about

(ii) how companies could discharge their human rights responsibilities and resolve dilemmas in their day-to-day operations, and
