The Pending EU-Myanmar Investment Protection Agreement: RISKS & OPPORTUNITIES

This study was commissioned to explore in more detail the risks that an EU-Myanmar IPA may pose to local communities, particularly in relation to land. The study takes a rights-based approach and focuses first of all on implications of the agreement for land related human rights, particularly the right to food and its fair distribution, the right to adequate housing, and the right to self-determination including the rights of indigenous people.

This report was commissioned by DanChurchAid, ICCO Cooperation (as lead of the Civic Engagement Alliance Myanmar), ACT Alliance EU, and the ACT Forum in Myanmar. The report has been written by Emilie Röell, as an independent assignment, and the content does not necessarily represent the views or opinions of the commissioning organisations.
