Fri., 4 November 2022, 14:00-15:30


House of the European Union, Wipplingerstraße 35, 1010 Vienna

At the discussion event “A European supply chain law: How can it protect people and the environment”, numerous experts will address the topic of global supply chains. Our colleague Karin Lukas, President of the European Committee of Social Rights (ECSR) and Head of Programme Line at the Ludwig Boltzmann Institute of Fundamental and Human Rights (LBI-GMR), will also take part in the discussion on Fri, 4 November 2022, from 14:00 to 15:30 in the House of the European Union.

During the event, questions about the draft European supply chain law presented in February 2022 will be asked. Together with Karin Lukas, Minister of Justice Alma Zadić and Vice-President of the European Parliament Evelyn Regner, among others, will debate the following points:

  • What does the present draft contain?
  • To what extent is it suitable for actually protecting people and the environment?
  • How practicable and feasible are the requirements?
  • Where do improvements need to be made and how can they be achieved?

In addition to the discussion, film clips from the Film “The Illusion of Abundance” (Erika Gonzalez Ramirez & Matthieu Lietaert, D/COL 2022) will be shown, and enthralling inputs on the need for more legal responsibility in global supply chains and the European directive proposal will be given.

The organisers kindly ask for registration.
