The Latin American Mining Monitoring Programme (LAMMP) has the pleasure to invite you to its upcoming conference:
BEYOND GOOD BUSINESS: Advocating for women’s rights in the context of natural resource extraction and the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights”
Monday 26 October 2015, 9:30-17:30, The Woburn Suite, Senate House, London.
In recent years, there has been growing awareness of the environmental, social and human impacts of worldwide extractivism on the lives and rights of rural and indigenous peoples. Yet, the specific impacts on women from these communities remain largely unaddressed.
In the run-up to the UN Annual Forum on Business and Human Rights, and drawing on the UN Guiding Principles on Business and Human Rights (UNGP), Beyond Good Business will explore the big-picture and the day-to-day challenges faced by women impacted by extractivism worldwide, offer concrete solutions that seek to fully integrate women’s rights into the implementation of the UN Guiding Principles to support women in accessing remedy from adverse human rights impacts, and to promote women’s rights and empowerment.
Beyond Good Business is organised by the Latin American Mining Monitoring Programme (LAMMP), with the kind support from the Institute of Latin American Studies (ILAS), and the Taiwan Foundation for Democracy.
