How Can Global Britain lead on Human Rights

The panel will discuss how Britain can play a crucial role in strengthening human rights and international law after Brexit


Britain’s EU exit comes at a time when the rules-based international order which enabled its global influence is threatened more than since its post-war birth. Divisive nationalism, ‘disinformation’, hate speech, and the growing power of serial human rights abusers (eg Russia and China) have major implications for the world. There is hope: worldwide, people are working to secure fundamental rights and freedoms. How can Britain pursue its role as a global leader on human rights and development?

Yet, in the UK only one in five small and medium-sized business are being run by women, creating a significant pool of untapped entrepreneurial potential. To meet the urgent need for change, this panel will discuss how we can address the leadership diversity gap within businesses and develop enterprise capability to make diversity everyone’s business.
