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.

It is edited by Dr Cathal M. Doyle of Middlesex University Business School and contains a foreword by Pavel Sulyandziga, member of the UN Working Group on business & human rights.

The book refers to allegations linked to the following companies.  Business & Human Rights Resource Centre invited the companies to respond if a previous response by the company was not available.  All companies are welcome to provide further comments:
