About Us

The Trust was founded during 2015 by current trustee, Dr. Hugo Meyer van den Berg. The main object of the Trust is to promote education and research in African mining and energy law in general and specifically education and research in Namibian mining and energy law. In line with the general object, it also supports education and research in various other areas of law which directly or indirectly influence mining and energy law. These are: property law; labour law; environmental law; health and safety law; corporate social responsibility; and royalties and taxation.
