Grievances, human rights and investors protection

Land-based investments can create significant grievances for local individuals or communities, and host governments seeking to address those grievances must navigate a complicated landscape of legal obligations and pragmatic considerations.

This report focuses on practical solutions for governments confronting grievances that arise from large-scale investments in agricultural or forestry projects.

These solutions are considered in the context of governments’ legal obligations, particularly those imposed by international investment law, international human rights law, and investor-state contracts.
