The Ilisu Dam Campaign highlights
the consequences of international
investment abroad, particularly that
supported by Export Credit Agencies,
that result in environmental
destruction or human rights
In 2001, the Kurdish cultural
heartland, Hasenkeyf, was due to be
flooded by the proposed Ilisu Dam
project. Up to 60,000 people would
have been affected or displaced. The
project was stalled by the withdrawal
of its major investors following the
IDC's successful campaign.
The Campaign now highlights how
large scale infrastructure projects
(dams, oil and gas pipelines) - often
backed by taxpayers - can cause
human rights violations,
environmental damage, and create
refugees. It works to build links
between refugee communities,
anti-globalisation organisations and
interested groups and individuals
throughout the world.
