For a number of conflict regions, particularly in Africa, the current concepts designed to prevent or halt natural resource exploitation as funding sources for war and insurgencies appear to be outdated. Sanctions regimes to prevent natural resources from fuelling armed conflict, as devised by the United Nations, as well as due diligence schemes such advised by the OECD or made mandatory for US companies by the Dodd-Frank Act, appear to be behind the curve of the actual developments.
As part of the Geneva Peace Week this session, jointly organised with the Friedrich Ebert Stiftung, aims to analyse and update conceptions and unintended consequences on the ground.
