Risks and challenges around human rights and conflict

Multinationals in conflict-affected areas

This paper highlights some of the risks and challenges associated with multinational corporations operating in fragile and conflict-affected areas, including human rights abuses; the lack of corporate accountability in such situations; and the risk of sparking or intensifying conflict. The paper aims to contribute to ongoing discussions about the harmful impacts of multinational corporations in fragile environments, and on how the private sector can contribute to peaceful economic development instead of conflict. To this end, a number of recommendations to improve corporate accountability and decrease the risk of business-related human rights violations in fragile and conflict-affected areas are presented.
