Event: Addressing children's rights in business – An assessment from Switzerland and Liechtenstein



To understand where Swiss and Liechtenstein companies stands with regards to children’s rights, the Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights (GCBHR) and the Centre for Children's Rights Studies (CIDE) at the University of Geneva have conducted a study on behalf of UNICEF and the UN Global Compact in Switzerland and Liechtenstein on companies’ implementation of children’s rights along their value chains.

We will present the results and the final report that highlight good practices, challenges and opportunities with regards to the respect and promotion of children’s rights by Swiss and Liechtenstein businesses.

The registration for the launch event for our study is now open on the UN Global Compact’s website.
