Switzerland's responsibility as the main commodity trading hub
12. Januar 2017 | Vortrag
Linking in with the issues explored by the focusTerra "BodenSchätzeWerte" exhibition, this talk will highlight some of the problematic practices in the oil and mineral resource sector, as well as possible solutions to the so-called resource curse. Andreas Missbach, Head of Public Eye's department of Commodities and Trade, will also present their latest investigative research project, "Dirty Diesel". This project uncovered Swiss commodity firms taking advantage of lax regulations to produce and sell highly-polluting fuels in Africa, to the detriment of public health.
