Latin America: Report details impacts of international arbitrations filed by mining companies
New report details the impacts of international arbitration filed by mining companies in countries across Latin America. The report analyses 38 cases filed by global mining corporations against Latin American governments using the investor-state dispute settlement (ISDS) system. The purpose of this report is to document the magnitude of the problem in the context of mining conflicts in Latin America and the troubling implications that these suits pose for the already difficult struggles of Indigenous Peoples and mining-affected communities to exercise their self-determination and to defend lands, water and ways of life from the destructive impacts of industrial mining.
