Where do you draw the line? - Research into the financial links between five bank groups and companies that abuse human rights

Inez Louwagie, Luc Weyn and Mathias Biestman. 2005, Netwerk Vlaanderen, Brussels

This paper explores the financial links between banks and companies which abuse human rights. In order to do so, it draws on the example of five major bank groups, which dominate the Belgian financial market (AXA, Dexia, Fortis, ING, KBC) showing how the banks invest in companies supporting dictatorial regimes and abusing human rights.
