Professor Kernaghan Webb, "CSR & the Law: Learning from the Experience of Canadian Firms in Latin America."

On Friday, October 29, Professor Kernaghan Webb delivered a lecture on the above subject, as part of the Ryerson Institute for the Study of CSR/Federal Extractive Sector CSR Counsellor Public Seminar Series, at Ryerson University in Toronto.

This particular talk was also co-sponsored by the Ryerson Law Centre. Based on research he is conducting, Dr. Webb’s presentation reviews current CSR-oriented legal disputes involving Canadian mining companies in Latin America, as a way of highlighting challenges associated with the legal regime, and opportunities for proactive environmental, social and economic practices by Canadian mining firms that can go some way towards reducing the likelihood that future legal issues will arise with respect to their operations.
