The Teaching Business and Human Rights Forum is a platform for collaboration among individuals teaching business and human rights worldwide. The Forum seeks to promote and strengthen business and human rights education by fostering collaboration among teachers. The Forum grew out of a workshop in May 2011 at Columbia University (New York) that convened twenty professors from the US and the UK to share teaching strategies and resources. The Forum has since grown to include more than 300 members teaching business and human rights at more than 150 institutions in 40 countries on five continents.


The Forum is led by two co-Directors (Joanne Bauer and Anthony Ewing) and a Governance Committee.
