Earth Rights International (ERI) EarthRights International (ERI) is a group of activists, organizers, and lawyers with expertise in human rights, the environment, and corporate and government accountability. Since 1995, ERI has worked in Burma to monitor the impacts of the large-scale natural resources development on local populations and ecosystems. ERI specialize in fact-finding, legal actions against perpetrators of earth rights abuses, training grassroots and community leaders, and advocacy campaigns. Through these strategies, EarthRights International seeks to end earth rights abuses, to provide real solutions for real people, and to promote and protect human rights and the environment in the communities where we work. In addition, ERI works alongside affected community groups to prevent human rights and environmental abuses associated with large-scale natural resource projects in Burma.
