New report on FPIC
02 May 2013
Middlesex, Europe
The launch of the report, Making Free Prior & Informed Consent a Reality: Indigenous Peoples and the Extractive Sector took place at Middlesex University in London on 2nd May 2013 (see http://int.piplinks.org/london-launch-research-paper-indigenous-peoples-and-mining).
The research was conducted on behalf of a consortium of organisations, including Indigenous Peoples Links (PIPLinks), Ecumenical Council for Corporate Responsibility (ECCR), and the Middlesex University School of Law, but backed by a larger number of indigenous advisors and organisations.

It is part of a project which aims to promote the human rights of indigenous peoples by persuading leading multinational mining companies to abide by their obligations under international human rights standards. Specifically, the project aims to achieve sector-wide adoption of FPIC as the global mining industry standard, in order to safeguard the rights of indigenous peoples faced with mining operations in their territories.
