Author

Sawyer, Suzana; Terence Gomez, Edmund

Description

A number of international financial institutions (IFIs) have expressed concern over the impact of resource extraction activities on the livelihood and culture of indigenous communities. This study argues that public-private partnerships studied in this report eventually led to the undermining of the state and its capacity to protect indigenous communities.
