May - June, 2016
From May 28 – June 4, 2016, DTP held a regional capacity building program on Human Rights, Indigenous Peoples, the Private Sector and Development in Indonesia. This program brought together two of DTP’s priority themes – human rights and business and the rights of Indigenous peoples and 33 participants from 11 countries. It was organised in partnership with ELSAM Indonesia. Facilitators included Brynn O’Brien (Australia Institute) and Matthew Coghlan (Singapore based lawyer/consultant) and Jannie Lasimbang (JOAS and former human rights commissioner, Malaysia). Business and human rights is central to the research and advocacy work of ELSAM and they were well positioned to recommend and invite a number of excellent resource people. The program was opened by Marzuki Darusman, the UN Special Rapporteur on North Korea and former Human Rights Commissioner with KomnasHAM.
