Book documents indigenous peoples' experience with access to remedy for corporate abuses
The book includes an overview of the theoretical and legal framework pertaining to indigenous peoples' access to remedy, followed by comparative case studies from Latin America, Africa and Asia. It concludes with a series of concrete recommendations, which are primarily targeted at States and companies. The case studies are based on experiences of indigenous peoples from Colombia, Peru, India, Cambodia, Malaysia, Tanzania and Kenya in attempting to seek access to remedy in the context of business related impacts on their human rights.
