The extractive industry is at the centre of a discussion about how businesses can support human rights protection and peacebuilding in the communities in which they work. Canadian mining companies have recently faced mounting criticism from non-governmental organizations (NGOs) about their human rights records and the social impact of some of their operations. Our panel discussion explores how the private sector, NGOs, and communities can work together to ensure environmental and economic sustainability and respect of human rights.
