We also welcome students interested in the Business and Human Rights field to join as Student Members.

CEEBHRA will aim to achieve its goal through networking activities, collaborative research focused on BHR in the region, awareness raising and capacity building activities as well teaching activities. We plan to organize annual gatherings to bring together experts from across the region to stimulate joint collaboration but also to be informed about the developments in the region.
