Abstract

This is the written testimony I submitted to the House Financial Services Committee for its subcommittee hearing on Section 1502 of Dodd-Frank (the “Conflict Minerals Rule”). It summarizes the key findings of my empirical study of corporate compliance with the Conflict Minerals Rule, and presents policy recommendations stemming therefrom. The full study, The Conflict Minerals Experiment, 6 Harvard Business Law Review (2015 Forthcoming), is posted to SSRN at http://ssrn.com/abstract=2548267.
