The Special Rapporteur’s factsheet summarizing the rights to freedom of peaceful assembly and of association in the context of natural resource exploitation, presented in an easy-to use “yes/no” format, with hyperlinks to source materials.
This factsheet draws heavily from the Special Rapporteur’s 2015 report to the UN Human Rights Council and features guidance on:
- • The obligation of States and corporations to uphold assembly and association rights in the context of natural resource exploitation
- • States’ responsibilities regarding private security firms and violations of human rights by corporations
- • The issue of blanket bans on peaceful assemblies surrounding natural resource exploitation operations
- • The rights of unregistered associations to participate in consultation processes
- • And more
The factsheet also summarizes the report’s recommendations, highlights key statistics in a “by the numbers” feature, and looks at the current international legal and regulatory framework for the sector.
