On Wednesday, 26 April 2023, Rethinking SLIC* team members Jindan-Karena (‘Nina’) Mann and Nicky Touw presented at a symposium on ‘Colonisation in, of and through Business & Human Rights’ which was organised by the University of Tilburg & Working Group on Business and Human Rights of the Netherlands Network of Human Rights Research (NNHRR) and hosted at Tilburg University.

The symposium aimed to contemplate and provide a holistic analysis of the multiple relations between colonialism, business and human rights.

Nina and Nicky contributed as part of one of five presenting panels at the event. In their joint presentation for the panel tackling systemic colonialism in business and human rights, the two weighed in on addressing the colonial legacies that characterise business and human rights trials in Global North courtrooms.
