For nearly 9 years until 2019, Jerome Bellion-Jourdan was a lead negotiator for the European Union on Business and Human Rights in the UN Human Rights Council. He has also led negotiations on other other thematic issues (impact of arms transfers on human rights, management of hazardous substances and wastes, right to development, sexual orientation and gender identity) and country situations in the Middle East and North Africa, Asia and Latin America.

In September 2019, he joined the Graduate Institute's Global Governance Centre in Geneva as a Senior Fellow in Residence to explore the potential for an "international negotiation platform". He also remained heavily involved in the area of Business and Human Rights/Responsible Business Conduct: design and delivery of trainings in negotiation and Business and Human Rights for UNITAR; speaker at events on mandatory Human Rights Due Diligence; publication of blog posts:
