FIAN Norway and FoHRC - Food, Human Rights and Corporations are happy to invite you to seminar on Investments and Land Rights.

Picture: FIAN Norway

When states fail to provide adequate rights protection to farmers and forest-dependent communities, should companies be encouraged to take on that role? 

And how do we ensure meaningful participation and consultation with local people affected by land acquisitions?

International guest speakers include Andy White from the Rights and Resources Initiative and the Interlaken Group, Henry Thomas Simarmata from La Via Campesina, and Frankie Abreau from the Tenasserim River and Indigenous River Network (TRIP NET) in Myanmar.

You are welcome to join us for the full day, or for the morning or afternoon session. 

Preliminary programme is attached herewith. Please feel free to circulate it.

The seminar is open to everyone, but requires registration. Please register by filling out the form on THIS PAGE by Thursday 9 June.

Coffee/tea and lunch will be served.
