OXFAM Webinar: Learning from Extractive Industry Negotiations with Indigenous Peoples

OXFAM, Conservation International, and Rainforest Foundation invite you to attend a panel discussion with Ciaran O’Faircheallaigh.

The webinar is titled: Let’s Make a Deal? Learning from Extractive Industry Negotiations with Indigenous Peoples. The webinar will take place at Oxfam America on Tuesday, July 18, from 3:00 pm – 5:00 pm. (Oxfam America Office, 1101 17th St NW, Suite 1300, Washington, DC 20036.)

Professor O’Faircheallaigh has over two decades of experience working with indigenous peoples on agreement making, and will share key findings from his analysis of 45 negotiations between indigenous peoples and mining companies in Australia and Canada. Discussants will comment on their varied experiences with negotiation processes around extractive industry projects and will consider the potential for drawing on best practice from industrialized countries for application to developing countries.
