Professor Leïla Choukroune, Theme Director of Democratic Citizenship, will be a key speaker at the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) Conference Next Generation Trade: Building a Principled, People-centred Global Economy.
Professor Leïla Choukroune will discuss the most promising strategies to promote gender equality and foster greater inclusion and prosperity for all.
The conference “Next Generation Trade: Building a Principled, People-centred Global Economy” held by the Institute for Human Rights and Business will take place on December 3, 2019 in the Museum of London. In the midst of divisive forms of nationalism and rising populism, alarming climate change, and growing geopolitical unrest, renewed efforts are urgently needed to shape a more sustainable, people-centred economy as a shared global project. On the occasion of its 10th anniversary, the IHRB is bringing together at the Museum of London Docklands global leaders from government, business, academia, and civil society to explore the role of trade in achieving sustainable development and respect for human rights.
The conference will bring together different topics, such as Fostering Inclusion, Building the Future of Work, Creating Change for the Climate, Technological Progress and Peril and Catalysing Policy Coherence. Professor Leïla Choukroune will be a key speaker on the topic “Fostering Inclusion”, discussing ways to overcome challenges for women and minorities including discriminatory laws, lack of access to finance and precarious employment so that trade can promote gender equality and foster greater inclusion and prosperity for all.
This is a prestigious conference on the topics of Business and Human Rights. Professor Leïla Choukroune is the only featured speaker from a British academic institution. Her participation and presentation will be of high value for both the University of Portsmouth and IHRB.
