Human Rights, Sustainability and Global Finance - The Needed Convergence

In this special lecture, Dr. Aniket Shah will explain how human rights, sustainability and global finance are interrelated, why they need to converge and what that means for all the agents and stakeholders this global situation involves.

This convergence of frameworks for social action also requires the convergence of mindsets: adopting long-term perspectives, engaging with new types of data and applying frameworks that bring a more comprehensive range of values into consideration.
