firma2We, European Civil Society organisations, declare that the European directive  on the responsible sourcing of minerals from conflict-affected and  high risk areas needs to be amended.   Why?  Because the regulations proposed by the directive are voluntary.  European companies importing these minerals are not required to investigate whether they are fuelling conflict and, as a consequence, the regulations are unlikely to be effective. In the coming months, we in ALBOAN, will be collecting signatures for a petition which we will present to our representatives in the European parliament.

We want a European directive that will effectively prevent the international minerals trade from fuelling armed conflicts.

Many people’s lives are at stake. Send us your email address so that we can keep you up to date with all our campaign actions, like this petition.


If you want to know more about the regulation proposal or make an advocacy action in your own country, here you have an advocacy toolkit that may help you in this issue.

This toolkit was elaborated in collaboration with JESC and JM
