Community Grievance Mechanisms and Australia Mining Companies Offshore: An Industry Discussion Paper

This paper focuses on one aspect of this broader challenge, which is ensuring that communities in other countries who are impacted by the activities of Australian mining companies can access grievance mechanisms that are fair, trusted and effective. Specific questions addressed are: Why is it important to have such mechanisms in place? What sorts of remedies are currently available to communities in other countries who consider that they have been adversely affected by the actions of Australian mining companies? What actions could companies take, either individually or collectively, to improve processes for addressing community grievances? What are some next steps for generating a broader dialogue around these issues?
