Shuvra Dey’s PhD thesis analyses the systematic acquisition of indigenous land by companies and the involvement of the state and aims to conceptualize their responsibilities in relation to indigenous rights. The thesis presents a real-life case showing the adverse impacts of franchise arrangements on the human rights of indigenous peoples and examines the extent to which companies must exercise human rights due diligence in order to address such impacts.
