2015 Forum on Business and Human Rights: Parallel sessions by external organizers


The Working Group, which oversees the preparations of the programme, aims to repeat the success of the 2014 Forum in involving stakeholders in the organization of parallel sessions. The 2014 Forum featured 39 parallel events led by external partners, covering a diverse array of themes and topics. Stakeholder contributions will be a central feature also of the 2015 Forum.    

The deadline for submitting proposals for parallel sessions / side events at the 2015 annual Forum closed on 1 May. By the deadline, the Forum Secretariat received around 140 proposals, which are currently being reviewed. Responses to submitting organizations will be provided in due course (tentative timeline: end of June). Due to the high volume of received proposals, submitting organizations are informed that it will not be possible to accommodate all proposals. The Forum organizers will strive to be as inclusive as possible within the limited time and space available for the event.
