Webinar for the launch of the new Japanese Website on Business and Human Rights

The Business and Human Rights Resource Centre, in support of the Sasakawa Peace Foundation, has launched a new Japanese website for the aim of disseminating relevant business and human rights information to wide Japanese stakeholders to promote responsible business conduct. 

As it happens, the Japanese government has just published the "Business and Human Rights National Action Plan 2020-2025," and more efforts on this issue are highly expected. In this webinar, we will explain our new website and also discuss about this new National Action Plan (NAP) from various perspectives with prominent panelists.
