About the event:
The dramatic rise in conflicts associated with mining operations over the past 15 years has coincided with a worldwide increase in mining activities, with major consequences for local communities, companies, and host countries. We present some of the key findings of a two-year study focusing on community-level mining conflicts. The research involved a literature review of 275 studies, a quantitative analysis of over 300 conflict incidents between 2002-2013, and field investigations of conflict cases in five countries located in Africa and Latin America. The presentation includes a discussion of conceptual frameworks employed for comparative analysis of mining conflicts, a description of the major pathways leading to conflicts, and of policies and practices designed to prevent and transform mining-related conflicts.

This event is a part of the CIRDI seminar series.
