Launch of the Business and Human Rights Clinic

The GCBHR is excited to announce the launch of the world’s first Business and Human Rights Clinic at a business school!

The Clinic is part of the new Master of Science in Responsible Management program at University of Geneva’s School for Economics and Management.

In October, 20 students applied, 13 were interviewed and 7 selected to be part of the BHR Clinic. They now work alongside the GCBHR team to address a concrete human rights challenge that a co-founding company is currently facing.

The GCBHR is grateful for the commitments of Trafigura and Holcim, two Swiss companies that agreed to co-sponsor the Clinic following a call for contributions published in October 2020.
