This International Alert guidance addresses the question of how companies can ensure respect for human rights in their operations without exacerbating or generating conflicts. The objectives of the guidance are:
- Help companies from the extractive sector understand any conflicts in their operating context and identify the implications these have for HRDD.
- Provide tools, case studies and recommendations to help companies and other practitioners conducting HRDD in conflict-affected settings.
- Contribute to ongoing debates on business, human rights and conflict sensitivity.
