From labour abuses to mass dislocation of peoples, infrastructure projects in developing countries raise a number of human rights problems. This paper develops a concept of 'human rights risk' to understand how project planners approach infrastructure projects in diverse subject areas and in different locations. A number of ways of managing human rights risks are discussed including litigation, anti-corruption legislation and market-based codes for transnational corporations. Then, the handling of human rights problems within the context of three infrastructure projects is examined.
