Past Event: “UN Security Council Sanctions on Natural Resources: Towards a More Global Approach”

March 21/22, 2013
UN Church Center, New York
Attendance only by Invitation

workshop natural resourcesFES New York co-sponsored this two-day exchange of views on current sanctions as a means to prevent natural resources revenues from fuelling conflicts. Current UN natural resources-related sanctions are linked with governance and due diligence standards that may not adequately reflect global variations in trading concepts, particularly those of the political South. This dialogue initiated a year-long series of events and activities, which should help formulate recommendations for more effective sanctions and due diligence guidelines designed to inspire truly global observance. Among the speakers were Claude Kabemba (Director SARWatch, pictured left) and Paul Yenga Mabolia (National Coordinator, Promines DRC- Ministry of Mines, pictured right).
