Human Rights and Agribusiness - Plural Legal Approaches to Conflict Resolution, Institutional Strengthening and Legal Reform

Proceedings of the Workshop at Bali, Indonesia, 28th November - 1st December 2011

This publication documents the proceedings of a four day conference on ‘Human Rights and Agribusiness: Plural Legal Approaches to Conflict Resolution, Institutional Strengthening and Legal Reform’ (Bali, 28th November – 1st December 2011), convened by the Indonesian Government’s National Human Rights Commission (Komnas HAM). This high level meeting brought together the heads of human rights commissions of the region, notable academics, NGOs and indigenous peoples’ organisations with the purpose of developing a regional standard on human rights and agribusiness. The Bali Declaration on Human Rights and Agribusiness which resulted from this meeting, reminds companies of their legal obligation to fulfil their responsibilities to respect human rights and calls on States to protect the rights of their citizens, including indigenous peoples, in the face of unprecedented pressures from agribusiness.
