The Universal Declaration of Human Rights unanimously adopted by the United Nations in 1948 assures workers the right to work at a just wage under favorable working conditions. However, in organizations throughout the world – from developing and emerging market countries to those of the industrialized sphere – these rights are not always guaranteed.

Join us for a panel discussion with experts whose mission has been to ensure for a just and sustainable global market network. With experience in various industries across Africa, the Middle East and Asia, they can provide an inside view on these networks — the successes, as well as overwhelming challenges still to be met. They will  identify the stakeholders involved — Governments, businesses, every day consumers — exploring fully the roles and level of collaboration needed to ensure that all workers are treated with dignity and without discrimination.
