Event Description

Please join us for a luncheon briefing on "The Risks of Gold-mining in Haiti."  Six years after the devastating earthquake, Haiti faces another potential disaster from large-scale gold-mining.  Can Haiti avoid the "resource curse,"  or will gold-mining contribute to even greater corruption, environmental damage and social conflict? Haiti has a unique opportunity now to hold a robust public debate about the risks of mining for the Haitian people, and to implement preventive measures to avoid future human rights abuses and environmental harms.  This briefing will explore the potential risks of mining in Haiti and the role of the US government in helping ensure protection of human rights and the environment.

 

Panelists:

Tonny Joseph, Governance Program Manager, Oxfam Haiti

Camille Chalmers, Director, Haitian Advocacy Platform for Alternative Development (PAPDA) and Haiti Mining Justice Collective

Nikki Reisch, Global Justice Clinic, New York University School of Law

 

Moderator:

Keith Slack, Global Program Manager, Extractive Industries, Oxfam America, Washington, DC
