World Policy On Air, Ep. 133: “Investing in Murder”

World Policy On Air is a podcast from the pages and website of World Policy Journal.

In March, EarthRights International filed a lawsuit against the International Finance Corporation, the World Bank’s private-lending arm, on behalf of a group of farmers in the Bajo Aguán region of Honduras. On this week’s episode of World Policy On Air, lawyer Lauren Carasik discusses the IFC’s role in backing the agribusiness at the center of a bloody land dispute and the farmers’ struggle for justice.

Read Lauren Carasik’s article, “Investing in murder: Honduran farmers sue World Bank’s lending arm for fueling land conflict,” in the summer issue of World Policy Journal.
