Business and Human Rights in Eritrea: Lessons from the Mining Sector
Eritrea’s economy is increasingly reliant on international business. The development of the country’s extractive sector holds particular potential with gold, silver, copper and zinc proving lucrative sources of revenue for the state. However, accusations of forced labour and exploitation undermine this economic growth, and greater redistribution of mineral wealth is required to improve human development.
At this event, speakers will discuss the opportunities for business in Eritrea, and will highlight the responsibility that multinational corporations share for safeguarding the rights of workers and local stakeholders.
