When activists have exhausted their options for challenging mining corporations at the national level, where can they turn?
One option is the Organization for Economic Cooperation and Development (OECD), the club of the richest countries in the world. OECD states have agreed to a set of guidelines to which multinational enterprises headquartered or operating in member states should follow. If activists believe that a mining corporation has violated those guidelines, it can bring a case to an OECD National Contact Point, which OECD states must establish to handle complaints against multinational enterprises.
But how successful have activists been with this process? And what other options exist at the international level? Join three experts and activists for an answer to these questions.
