In September President Barack Obama announced plans to develop a National Action Plan to promote responsible business conduct abroad, consistent with UN and other international guidelines on business and human rights. The White House recently announced several organizations would be hosting consultations to seek contributions from U.S. business and civil society about what the National Action Plan should contain. The OU College of Law was noted as one of the hosts for these consultations in 2015.
Herman G Kaiser Chair in International Law Evelyn Aswad stated “We at the OU College of Law are well situated to host such consultations, particularly given our expertise and network of contacts in the human rights, energy/natural resources, and other sectors. We are looking forward to a productive dialogue that will contribute to the development of the U.S. National Action Plan.”
