Declaration on the rights of the peasants: new info note



Peasants and other people working in rural areas are one of the most vulnerable group to human rights violations.


This project relies on a unique strategy: draft a declaration which would take into account problems raised by peasants organizations and make sure it is recognized by the UN and human rights governance systems.


For more than 15 years, La Via Campesina (LVC) has been working closely with FIAN International, CETIM (Centre Europe Tiers Monde) and other civil society organizations which has allowed to outline the current draft declaration.
