Proponents believe one example clearly demonstrating the need for this report concerns the ongoing atrocities in Darfur, Sudan, and how certain types of foreign investment contribute to the conflict.
Darfur continues to experience human rights abuses on an unimaginable scale, including systematic and widespread murder, torture, rape, abduction, looting and forced displacement. Since February 2003, hundreds of thousands of civilians have been killed by both deliberate and indiscriminate attacks, and 2.5 million civilians in the region have been displaced.
Much of the revenue fueling this conflict is generated by Sudans oil industry, as the majority of these revenues are funneled into military expenditures.
