Corporate responsibility to respect the rights of minorities and indigenous peoples

22 October 2012

Minorities and indigenous peoples around the world continue to face eviction from their lands and other violations of their rights caused by private sector development and extractive projects, such as mining, oil and gas, and logging activities.

This briefing provides a global overview of the issue, including consultation and free, prior and informed consent, legal redress of violations, environmental impacts, case studies and MRG recommendations.

An earlier version of this briefing was published in MRG’s State of the World’s Minorities and Indigenous Peoples 2012.
