Peace and conflict resolution in rural areas
The conference explores the relationship between the UN Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in Rural Areas (UNDROP) and rural conflict resolution. It invites practical and theoretical approaches to overcome current conflicts in rural territories between global North and South. The relevance of this conference responds to the need to update legal systems, legal knowledge and advocacy with the human rights for rural populations in the pursuit of sustainable development and durable peace.
The 2-day seminar is organized around central lectures on the social, economic and political rights of peasants, the safety of peasant leaders, gender equality, land rights, biodiversity and healthy environment, food security, the role of the state, UN agencies and peasant movements.
