Arvind Ganesan (center) with OU Law students.
More than 90 OU Law students recently attended a talk by Arvind Ganesan, the Director of Business and Human Rights at Human Rights Watch in Washington, D.C. Ganesan spoke to students about how encryption, as well as supply chain issues facing businesses, can negatively impact the enjoyment of human rights. He also discussed ways forward for these contemporary problems.
Ganesan has expertise on a wide range of issues at the intersection of business and human rights, including with regard to the extractive industries, public and private security providers, freedom of expression and privacy on the internet, labor rights, and supply chain monitoring and due diligence regimes. The event was co-sponsored by the Oklahoma International Law Society and Professor Evelyn Aswad.
