Case Study : Engagement with Communities in Mining Projects

This case study was developed by the Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice’s Business and Human Rights Initiative.  Based in Colombia, the case study examines a mining company’s strategy for engaging with local communities, with a particular focus on the importance of having a due diligence process and grievance mechanism. Good practices and lessons learned are also included, in order to address and mitigate human rights challenges in corporate engagement with local communities.
