“Sea of Knowledge! Sea of Emotions!”


“Sea! Sea of Knowledge! Sea of Emotions!” – a quote from one of the participants of the Summer School on Business and Human Rights, that RWI organised in Lund, 7-14 July.

Last week, 24 highly motivated students from seven different universities across Belarus came to Lund to learn about how business impacts human rights.

The purpose of the Summer School was to provide a general introduction to:
