Synthesis Report - Appendix 13

Zandvliet, L. and Don Pedro, I.
A field team from the Corporate Engagement Project (CEP) visited Nigerias Niger Delta in March 2001 and April 2002 to examine the interaction between oil companies and the communities affected by their operations. CEP spoke with oil company representatives, international and national NGOs, human rights groups, lawyers, government officials, various oil-affected communities, and a range of other stakeholders concerned with the oil industry. The March 2002 visit took place at the invitation of the Centre for Social and Corporate Responsibility based in Port Harcourt but was independently conducted by a CEP team. The observations made in this case study cannot be attributed to any one specific oil company; it is a compilation of CEPs observations of the oil industry in general.
