Anne Myers, Global Campaign Director, Habitat for Humanity International
Piper Hendricks, Director of Advocacy Communications, Habitat for Humanity International and Board member, Washington Foreign Law Society
In a country with a well-established land titling system, land rights are taken for granted, at best, and seen as one more logistical hurdle in property transactions, at worst. In the majority of the world, however, land is undocumented and the lack of clarity around land rights inhibits economic growth and promotes in gender inequality. This panel will focus on the role of land in promoting gender equality – and, one step further, the role of law and lawyers in addressing issues of land.
Light breakfast will be served. Doors open at 8am.
Cost: This event is free for WBA members.
