    Can firms involved in Congo avoid human rights abuses, and help ensure that the benefits of its natural resources reach all of Congo’s people? This will require a joint effort by civil society, business, and governments alike. Laws such as the US Dodd-Frank Act provisions on conflict minerals and revenue transparency, and initiatives by technology firms to source minerals responsibly, are among the many tools that can help turn the tide. This event will bring perspectives from Congo and elsewhere to highlight business’ impacts on people’s lives in the country, and explore practical ways to advance human rights.
