Extract

This submission draws on Oxfam's experience of over 15 years of working with communities affected by mining and other large-scale infrastructure projects – sectors where much of EFIC‟s support is focused. Over this time we have been actively involved in advocacy, research, policy and capacity building among project-affected communities. Our work demonstrates that companies that fail to respect and uphold human rights through good policy and practice can cause harm to local communities. Our emphasis is on ensuring that companies, and the financial institutions that support them, including export credit agencies, have policies and practices in place which respect and protect human rights. This is particularly important when Australian companies do business in countries characterised by weak governance and conflict.
