Costs of Company-Community Conflict in the Extractive Sector. Rachel Davis & Daniel Franks (2014)

This research shows that most extractive companies do not currently identify, understand and aggregate the full range of costs of conflict with local communities. Although company-community conflict may generate the same broad effects as those caused by technical problems, contractual or regulatory disputes, or environmental or safety breakdowns (such as a reduction in or suspension of operations), it is typically not given equivalent attention or resources.
