OECD National Contact Points and the Extractive Sector - Second Annual Event

30 March 2013

On 22 March 2013, the Institute for Human Rights and Business (IHRB) together with the UK Department for Business, Innovation & Skills (BIS) brought together a range of OECD National Contact Points (NCPs), businesses within the extractive sectors, and trade union and civil society organisations. Focused on NCP “specific instances” in the extractives sectors for a second meeting of stakeholders since the establishment of the updated OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises (the Guidelines) in 2011, participants discussed progress since the March 2012 meeting and in particular looked at the “proactive agenda” as it might relate to high-risk investment contexts.
