The International Corporate Accountability Roundtable (“ICAR”) is hosting consultations with
local experts in various jurisdictions to gain valuable inputs into the Human Rights Due Diligence Project. The Human Rights Due Diligence Project will formulate legal and policy recommendations to governments to promote due diligence to prevent, remedy and mitigate adverse human rights impacts.

We extend our thanks to City University and Professor Surya Deva, Associate Professor, School of Law, City University of Hong Kong, for the excellent leadership and collaboration in this endeavor.
