What is the role of investors before, during and after conflict? How can investors engage with companies, so they develop enhanced measures to prevent and address human rights abuses?

RIAA is pleased to host Fauve Kurnadi, Legal Adviser at the Red Cross, and Jonathan Kolieb, Senior Lecturer in Law at RMIT University, who will share seven indicators of corporate best practice in international humanitarian law (IHL, also known as the law of war or armed conflict) as a guide for the corporate sector. These indicators aim to assist businesses in enhancing their human rights due diligence by effectively integrating IHL into companies' existing business and human rights frameworks. We will also hear about how research into the role of the finance sector and how investors can become involved.

This presentation will be followed by the second Human Rights Working Group Meeting for 2022, which all members are invited to attend. This will include the latest updates on modern slavery legislation in Australia and Aotearoa New Zealand, plus other key human rights issues for investors.


The Human Rights Working Group is focused on sharing and building knowledge of human rights; building the capacity of investment practitioners; broadening networks; and influencing policy in support of respecting human rights.
