Capacity Building Program for Community Advocates (Australia, 25th-29th September, 2006)
From 25 - 29 September 2006, 27 advocates from 15 countries came together in Sydney for the Diplomacy Training Program’s first course on the theme of human rights advocacy and business. The program participants shared interest and concern in identifying the human rights responsibilities of corporations and the challenges of holding corporations accountable to these responsibilities.
Many of the participants had direct experience of seeking to hold companies accountable for their practices and their impacts on their communities and societies. These issues are currently the focus of much international debate as processes of economic globalization have transformed the roles and power of both national governments and multi-national corporations.
