Communities as Counterparties: Preliminary Review of Concessions and Conflict in Emerging and Frontier Market Concessions
||Rights and Resources Initiative
From a business perspective, the risk posed by conflicts between concession operators and local populations in
emerging or frontier markets concerns more than just companies with ground-level operations. It also interests
investors. Grounded in an ongoing examination of case studies, this analysis describes the overarching patterns
of conflict between companies and local communities in emerging and frontier market concessions. Identifying
those patterns is the first step to establishing best practices for managing the risk.
