“Five days of Oxfam-HURBA business and human rights course cannot be described in a sentence or two. It was a wonderful experience attending the sessions at the Indian Law Institute, New Delhi. Those days were full of experience and a lot of knowledge. I wish to once again get a chance to attend the same. It was a wonderful opportunity.”
"As a practitioner in the field of workers' rights and corporate accountability, I found the course very useful for me. It was indeed an insightful experience. The course helped me gain a grasp of the fundamentals and the best practices in the field of BHR. The international standards and frameworks of BHR including key concepts such as human rights and environmental due diligence were unpacked and demystified by some of the best experts and practitioners in the field. I would highly recommend the course for others"
"The Business and Human Rights Course was very enlightening. The experience was wonderful and there was good learning on the topics. For persons unaware of the subject, it proved beneficial. I recommend and wish to attend more such courses in the future."

I attended the course on Business and Human Rights by Oxfam and HURBA in 2019. It was a great, knowledge-filled experience! I later applied my learnings to my writings!

Attending the Business and Human Rights (BHR) course by Oxfam and HURBA was a very interesting and valuable experience. I learnt a lot and it gave me a good conceptual grounding. Unlike other courses, this course is very engaging! We were supposed to read extensive study materials and were assigned practical problems to solve. It really made me think, and I liked how it enabled me to interact with people through practical work. Thank you, Oxfam! Looking forward to more such initiatives.
