With «Voices from Tanzania», IPIS launches a series of publications from local partners in order to bring their work on business and human rights to a larger audience.
In the framework of the EU-funded project “Improving monitoring, research and dialogue on Business & Human Rights in Tanzania” IPIS, the Tanzanian Commission for Human Rights and Good Governance (CHRAGG), and Business and Human Rights Tanzania (BHRT), launch the “Voices from Tanzania” series.
With this publication series, we want to provide editorial training and support for Tanzanian civil society actors who want to put their experiences and knowledge on business and human rights issues in writing. Many of them have unique knowledge and access to information on business and human rights challenges, but often struggle to reach a national, let alone international, audience
The “Voices from Tanzania” series strives to give a wider platform to Tanzanian civil society organisations. We aim to form a bridge between the hands-on local experience and expertise of Tanzanian civil society and an international audience of donors, researchers, private sector, NGOs, etc.
The “Voices from Tanzania” publications, including the analyses and recommendations presented, are based on the research conducted by our Tanzanian partners and solely belong to them. IPIS’ input remains limited to providing the necessary editorial training and support, and to supporting the dissemination of these publications as an edited volume to a wide, international audience.
The first volume in this series is expected by the end of 2018, and will include contributions by:
- Business and Human Rights Tanzania (BHRT)
- the Tanzanian Commission for Human Rights and Good Governance (CHRAGG)
- Governance Links
- Legal and Human Rights Centre (LHRC)
