What kind of human rights impacts are mining communities facing, when minerals used in electronics are extracted? Smartphones and laptops contain a vast number of different minerals that are sourced from all over the world. However, mining communities in many countries face human rights abuse, severe environmental impacts and extractive violence in connection to mining operations. In this seminar, Swedwatch gives a sneak-preview of its new film on how mining communities in Zambia are impacted by large scale mining. The  film trailer is followed by a panel discussion, focusing on challenges and impacts associated with minerals used in electronics, and what companies and buyers can do to prevent violations from occurring. The seminar is hosted by the European Campaign Make ICT Fair that is funded by the European Union under the EU Dear programme.
