Strathclyde Centre Environmental Law GovernanceBENELEX at Glasgow University TEDx Talks

On 2nd March 2019, BENELEX PI Elisa Morgera participated in the Glasgow University TEDx Talks. Her talk focused on BENELEX findings on indigenous peoples' human rights to natural resources and benefitted from insights from the field work in Argentina with partner NGO FARN. The talk was based on Morgera’s article "Under the radar: the role of fair and equitable benefit-sharing in protecting and realising human rights connected to natural resources" which has been recently published in the International Journal of Human Rights and BENELEX Working Paper No 19 “Indigenous Peoples’ Rights to Natural Resources in Argentina: The Challenges of Impact Assessment, Consent and Fair and Equitable Benefit-Sharing in Cases of Lithium Mining”.
