The Great Rush – The European Union’s responsibility in natural resources grabbing
Study | 31 October 2014
Land, forests, water and raw materials are valuable resources that increasingly interest the major players of the economy of our planet. This report collects 16 case studies from around the world in order to better understand the impacts of natural resource grabbing on the local communities, clarify the responsibilities of the European Union and, in conclusion, examine actions to be undertaken to invert this phenomenon.
The report was prepared and published by the organisations Mani Tese, Les Amis de la Terre, CEE Bankwatch Network, Re:Common, Ce.VI and Cicma.
