Business and Human Rights Developments in Central and Eastern Europe
Various jurisdictions across the world have adopted National Action Plans in Business and Human Rights and have enacted legislations or are discussing legislative initiatives to regulate companies and prevent adverse human rights and environmental impacts. These developments raise important questions about the adequacy of existing norms and their ability to drive change towards responsible business practices. Whilst much of the focus so far has been on a small number of countries seen as "big players"; less attention has turned to jurisdictions in Central and Eastern Europe in which important developments are currently occurring. The aim of this episode is to gather multi-stakeholders from Central and Eastern European jurisdictions in order to provide insights into the current regulatory landscape, and the lessons that can be learned from other jurisdictions.
