A talk by Andrea Shemberg, Chair of the Global Business Initiative for Human Rights.
Andrea began as Legal Advisor at Amnesty International UK and the International Commission of Jurists focusing on business, human rights and investment, before taking on the role of Legal Advisor to John Ruggie, the-then UN Special Representative of the Secretary General for Business and Human Rights (SRSG). In that capacity, Andrea led the SRSG’s work on investment contracts and treaties, advised him on international human rights, humanitarian and criminal law issues and participated in the drafting of the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights. She went on to establish and lead the Investment & Human Rights Project at the London School of Economics until 2016, where she continues as a Visiting Fellow. Andrea is a US-trained lawyer and began her legal career as an employment and labour lawyer for a management-side law firm. She regularly teaches business and human rights as a short course at the London School of Economics and guest lectures at law schools and for master’s courses.
This event took place at Polo Piagge (University of Pisa), in ROOM Q1, 13 April 2023.
