MAC: Mines and Communities

Introduction for the Law feature

The use of legal instruments to challenge the plans and operations of mining companies has increased exponentially over the past 15 or so years.

In the majority of cases, mining-affected communities  invoke state laws, either to forestall future derelictions, or gain compensation for past and present damages.

(The mining industry itself has also been taking on governments, alleging breaches of international contracts or treaties when they can't get their own  way - see "Arbitration" below).

A significant number of plaintiffs now also use international complaint mechanisms (such as the OECD Guidelines for Multinational Enterprises) in  attempst to halt a specific mining project in its tracks. (You will find many examples of this under "Legal Cases" below).

Such actions have secured mixed outcomes. They may delay a mine's construction, and occasionally result in its suspension. Arguably, however, equal - if not greater success - comes when communities take more direct action, such as blockading a mine site, or withholding their labour from it.

Governments may not have kept in step with these initiatives, but many have at least introduced new mining standards, even while lacking the capacity - or willingness - to enforce them (see "Legislation").

There's still a long way to go before mining companies are called fully to account. (For example, in their use of tax evasion "havens" to conceal profits - a practice still legal in most jurisdictions) (See "Other legal issues)".

However, it's arguable that the outright lawlessness, typical of so much of this extractive sector just a generation ago, is no longer being tolerated.
