Corporate Social Responsibility in the Extractive Industries
March 8, 2008 - Yale Law School - New Haven, CT
The Editors of Volume XI of the Yale Human Rights and Development Law Journal are pleased to announce that registration is now open for the Journal's inaugural Symposium on Corporate Social Responsibility in the Extractive Industries.
The Symposium proposes to explore a broad range of topics at the intersection of business, human rights, and development, with a unique emphasis on mining, fossil fuels, forestry products, and other extractive industries. These industries present unique challenges and opportunities in the developing world. Their role and their impact upon human rights and development are deeply controversial. The Symposium hopes to generate thought-provoking discussion about a wide variety of questions related to its broad topic.
We invite attendance from scholars in law, development, economics, business, and other fields; students; development practitioners and policymakers; businesspeople; and other participants interested in this important topic.
