Numerous United Nations authorities and human rights experts have reported the abuse of asylum seekers and refugees who are detained at Australian offshore immigration camps located on Nauru and Manus Island. Australia Institute examined the investments and operations of these offshore detention centres, and urges Norges Bank Investment Management to divest its shares in Ferrovial, which acquired the camp operator, Broadspectrum.

Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited Broadspectrum, Ferrovial & Norges Bank Investment Management to respond. Their responses are attached below.
