The FPIC Fixation: Indigenous - Mining Law, Internationally and Australia

Research output: Chapter in Book/Conference paperConference paper

Abstract

Free prior informed consent is frequently cited as a legal standard for the development of extractives projects which impact Indigenous groups, particularly in Latin America (through ILO Convention 169 and the Inter-American human rights regime). The basic concept is that mining impacts should not occur without the group’s FPIC, but that simplicity hides domestic complexity. This paper outlines the current state of FPIC at the international level, examines some common difficulties, and then describes Australian domestic law regarding these issues.
