Environmental and Social Conflict Resolution in the Resources Sector
06 April 2015
live webcast,
The extractive industry has the potential to significantly transform environments, communities and economies. At times, such transformation may manifest in conflicts or disputes between a resource developer and local communities, or even complete breakdown of the company's social licence to operate—with associated costs for the company, local communities, and the broader public.

May 2015

This three-part course draws on multi-faceted research at the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining from centre director Professor Saleem Ali and deputy directors Dr. Deanna Kemp and Dr. Daniel Franks to provide:

  • an understanding of the costs of conflict in the resource industry;
  • processes and mechanisms by which communities can make their concerns heard and which companies can draw on to work with communities to negotiate and resolve conflict; and
  • the causes and consequences of environmental conflicts in the research sector, and the process of using ecological factors to promote peace.
