Flaviano Bianchini (Source International) will talk about Business & Human Rights in the real world

The lecture is in a blended format, and will take place on the 14th of April CET in Room 1 at the Department of Economics and Management of the University of Pisa.

Flaviano Bianchini founded Source International in 2009.  Flaviano is an environmentalist and naturalist. Ashoka Fellow from 2012, specializes in Management and Valorization of Natural Resources at the University of Pisa and holds a Master’s Degree in Human Rights and Conflict Management at the Sant’Anna School of Higher Studies; for several years he has been dealing with violations of human rights and health damage related to the extractive industries, especially in Latin America.

His studies on the impact of mining on the environment and health led to the modification of the mining law in Honduras, the adoption of precautionary measures by the Inter-American Commission on Human Rights in Guatemala and the approval of laws on the welfare of the city of Cerro de Pasco in Peru. Between 2007 and 2009 he conducted an awareness campaign on the impact of mining activity in Latin America in collaboration with Amnesty International.
