The Corporate and Human Rights Program is implemented through innovative forms of advocacy in order to encourage companies to implement Human Rights Policies or Standard Operation Procedures (SOPs) in their operations, and to encourage the government to make respect for human rights mandatory under Indonesian policies.
Land-based industries and zones such as oil palm plantations, industrial forest zones (HTI), industrial logging zones, ecosystem restoration areas and mining zones in Indonesia are often the sites of legal, social and environmental problems. To overcome these problems, formal legalistic and positive law approaches alone are not sufficient – instead, a wider range of methods are needed.
Over the last decade, Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) approaches have been increasingly used in the land-based industrial sector. Negotiation and mediation are increasingly used as mediums to handle conflicts in the field.
We provide conflict resolution services through Alternative Dispute Resolution (ADR) methods, such as conflict assessment, conflict resolution trainings, negotiation and conflict mediation, participatory mapping as well as facilitation towards transforming conflict into equitable partnerships.
The Policy Reform Program is intended to support the development of policies that enable the sustainable management of natural resources, the welfare of communities and ecological, agrarian and natural resource justice and equity.
