The report is based on a desk study and a three-week
field trip to the Philippines, where data was gathered
through qualitative interviews. Interview partners included
affected communities, company representatives, local and
national civil society organizations, as well as government
authorities. By evaluating this data we shed light on the
main human rights issues linked to the Tampakan Project.
The choice of our interview partners reflects our human
rights approach. While our interviewees have both positive
and negative attitudes towards the Tampakan Project, they
do not constitute a representative sample of the population
in the area. Instead, our goal is to make sure that we include those people who have serious concerns with regard to their human rights situation and to analyze their hopes and fears and complement this information with desk research and the views of other stakeholders and experts.
