Multinational networks and the exploitment of natural resources in developing countries

Year: 2007 Author: Hugo Ahlenius, UNEP/GRID-Arendal
Description:
A generalized diagram of how multinational networks exploit and natural resources in developing countries through numerous temporary subsidiaries and the use of corruption and security firms to ensure rapid exploitation and maximum profits - but still having their hands 'clean'. Arms trading has been reported from the Democratic Republic of the Congo, while the bribes and 'security firms' also play a major role in Indonesia.
