Part 1: Katherine Tyler
Part 2: Rachel Chambers
Part 3: Joseph Croft
Speakers Katherine Tyler, a barrister from 9-12 Bell Yard, and Rachel Chambers, a barrister from Cloisters Chambers, consider some of the different methods of regulating the behaviour of extractive corporations when they operate in weak governance zones: they describe the increased standards of due diligence and accountability, and review both the grievance mechanisms available to claimants and the recent litigation trend.
Joseph Croft from Stakeholder Democracy Network looks at how, if properly regulated, extractive companies can promote development, and how community members are collectivising their bargaining power to ensure that companies remedy harmful effects and operate responsibly so that a country’s natural resource wealth can benefit all.
