Main Content: Oil pollution

Human rights impacts of oil pollution



This portal impartially presents the human rights impacts of oil pollution, from all sides.  What are the victims, advocates, companies and commentators saying?  Are the abuses continuing?  Are past abuses being addressed?  Are steps being taken to prevent further spills?  Do victims have effective remedies?  What is the latest news about lawsuits and compensation claims?

The portal’s purpose is to keep an ongoing focus on these important issues, and to provide a platform to reflect the continuing public debate.

All three briefings will be kept updated over the coming months and years.  Any company, organization or commentator wishing to submit a clarification, response or further information is welcome to do so – see contact details on the pages linked to above.
