Indigenous peoples and transnational corporations and other business enterprises
IWGIA, RAIPON, PiPlinks, Almáciga and, January 2012

This briefing note aims to show how indigenous peoples’ exclusion from political decision-making processes – locally, nationally, regionally and globally – places them in a position of extreme disadvantage vis-à-vis imposed industrial activities that affect their individual and communal lives, territories and resources. The note was published on the occasion of the first meeting of the newly established UN Working Group on the issue of human rights and transnational corporations and other business enterprises, held in January 2012, in Geneva, Switzerland.
