Commitment to Action

Video Series on Legal Rights for Urban Micro-Entrepreneurs

Commitment by

Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor

The secretariat of the Commission on Legal Empowerment of the Poor will produce a series on Market Forces - videos produced in three to five urban centers in developing countries - and organize broad dissemination of the series through internet, radio, and television. Each segment will be built around the visit of a global political leader (i.e. a member of the Commission) to a community where market venders are fighting for the right to do business legally and to gain secure rights to the property where they do business. Where possible, the video segments will present scenarios for solutions to this problem. We will also aim to involve local political leaders in these visits, to draw them into the process and to give market venders an opportunity to open negotiations and dialogue with their local and national political leaders.
