Symposium March 8 Looks At Corporate Social Responsibility in the Extractive Industries
The Yale Human Rights & Development Law Journal will host its inaugural symposium on “Corporate Social Responsibility in the Extractive Industries” on Saturday, March 8, at Yale Law School. The symposium, which runs from 8:30 a.m. to 7:30 p.m., is free and open to the public.
Participants will explore a broad range of topics related to business, human rights, and development, with an emphasis on mining, fossil fuels, forestry products, and other extractive industries.
“These industries are confronted with unique challenges and opportunities in the developing world,” said Nicole Hallett, editor-in-chief of the YHRDLJ. “Their role and impact on human rights and development are deeply controversial, and we expect the symposium to generate thought-provoking discussion on the topic.”
Registration begins at 8:30 a.m., followed by introductory remarks by Dean Harold Hongju Koh. Panels throughout the day will explore topics such as the resource curse in developing countries, corporations in conflict zones, legal regimes versus voluntary codes, and the future of corporate social responsibility.
At 6:00 p.m., Gare Smith of Foley Hoag LLP will deliver a keynote address.
