An indigenous community hears that the government is about to authorize a new mining project in their traditional lands. Can the community still say "no" to this development? What kind of benefits is the community entitled to, if the project goes ahead? Strathclyde’s research in International law aims to clarify practical steps, for governments and private companies to follow, to ensure respect for indigenous peoples’ human rights and environmental protection.
