Should the UN Declaration on the Rights of Peasants and Other People Working in Rural Areas include a right to land and other natural resources? Should this right include individual and/or collective entitlements? And does the draft UN Declaration being negotiated at the Human Rights Council contain agreed language on this right? These are some of the questions that were discussed during the expert seminar on the right to land and other natural resources, jointly organized by FES Geneva, the Geneva Academy of International Humanitarian Law and Human Rights, the Government of Switzerland and the Permanent Mission of Bolivia to the United Nations in Geneva.
