The ''Petro Violence '' in the Oil rich Niger Delta of Nigeria : A Moral Accessment  of the Conflict between Shell and Its Host Communities

University essay from Linköpings universitet/Centrum för tillämpad etik

Abstract:

ABSTRACT

Niger Delta of Nigeria is a region characterized with conflict commonly conceptualized as ‘‘petro-violence’’. This violence  between Shell and its host communities has lasted over four decades. While the activities of Shell and other oil companies destroy the ecology of the region , the oil producing communities demand improved explorative and exploitative activities of the companies, improved welfare for the people and compensation for the harm done to the ecology of the region. This work examines whether Shell can really be blamed for contributing to the conflict in the region and whether it is morally permissible for Business Corporation like Shell to engage in Corporate Social Responsibility.
