Examine and understand the human rights law applicable to petroleum and mining operations. Referencing current international human rights standards relevant to these operations this course will focus on the international and regional structures, and how they are placed within a domestic context through two workshops examining how they apply to a project within Australia and of an Australian company operating overseas.
The course will enable participants to:
- understand and use main international human rights law standards applicable to mining and petroleum operations
- have working knowledge of the international and regional human rights mechanisms which develop and monitor human rights standards
- their relevance within Australian law
- the applicability in relation to businesses
- apply the concepts of human rights standards and structures to an analysis of how human rights law is relevant to mining and petroleum operation.
