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 operateŚwith associated costs for the company, local communities, and the broader public.
This three-part course draws on multi-faceted research at the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining 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.
