Company Management of Security and Human Rights in Sub-Saharan Africa

This case study was developed by Linklaters LLP as part of a joint project with the Cyrus R. Vance Center for International Justice’s Business and Human Rights Initiative. It traces the history of an oil and gas company making its first investment into a project in sub-Saharan Africa and illustrates best practices in impact assessment as well as challenges that can emerge from underestimating the need for a continuous stakeholder engagement. The case study also provides lessons learned and good practices to address and mitigate key challenges in the engagement with local communities.
