Multinational Crimes: The Shell Case

06 June 2013 - Event
 

Last year, Bassey won the Rafto Prize in Norway, in recognition of his long-term work for environmental justice. The recent Shell case in the Netherlands has shown that oil companies can be held accountable for environmental crimes of sister holdings in foreign countries. This can be seen as an important step, according to Bassey, Member of the Executive Committee of Friends of the Earth International, as it means that multinationals can more easily be made answerable for the damage they do in developing countries.

What does this mean for a development path that takes environmental justice seriously and makes corporations meaningfully accountable?
