About the Baku Ceyhan Campaign


The Baku Ceyhan Campaign is working to raise public awareness of the social problems, human rights abuses and environmental damage that are being caused by the Baku-Tbilisi-Ceyhan oil pipeline, which runs through Azerbaijan, Georgia and Turkey. In particular, the campaign argues that public money should not be used to subsidise social and environmental problems, purely in the interests of the private sector, but must be conditional on a positive contribution to the economic and social development of people in the region.
