Every year, the Centre for Human Rights Studies at the University of Zurich hosts a summer school examining the topical theme of business and human rights. The summer school, BHRICO (Business and Human Rights - Interdisciplinary Challenges and Opportunities), is a two-week intensive programme that seeks to be a forum of learning with leading experts on the topic. Each class intake is limited, so as to create a roundtable atmosphere conducive to active dialogues with our external lecturers and students from partner institutions and other universities.
