Report on Regional Workshop on Access to Natural Resources /Extra Territorial States Obligations
Prepared by: Md. Mujibul Haque Munir
Venue: Nepal, Kathmandu, 16-19 April 2013.
The issue of Access to Natural Resources is quite common in this region. But the terms and issue of Extra-territorial Obligation (ETO) of states is relatively new. In fact the idea of ETO has been get a pace since 2011 from Geneva. Some humanitarian organizations have been trying to promote this idea and to ensure recognitions of this issue in nation and international level policy. Working in this regard in European and Latin American countries is little bit stronger than that of Asia and South Asia region. That is why the organizers organized this program to promote the idea among the South Asian development activists and academicians. In this short report I will try to give some brief idea about the issue, I will also try to give some summary of some of the key presentation in the workshop.
