Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights
The Geneva Center for Business and Human Rights (GCBHR) is the first Human Rights Center at a business school in Europe.
The Center works with companies to identify business models that enable profits and principles to co-exist. We offer companies a safe space to discuss pressing human rights challenges and train future leaders to develop and integrate human rights standards in their respective industry contexts.
The GCBHR collaborates with the NYU Stern Center for Business and Human Rights to promote human rights in business education through the Global Network of Business Schools for Human Rights.
