Product details

This collection of expert academic articles aims to investigate how conflict prevention and resolution methods should more effectively support the global justice movement not only at an international level, but also at extractive industry sites in the four corners of the world. By understanding how many areas respond to concerns of social, cultural and environmental justice, the authors of several chapters of this collaborative book intend to pinpoint questions of fairness and redress in relation to “glocal” (i.e. global and local) governance.

A focus will be on cases involving Canadian extractive companies, as the country is home to more than 70% of the world’s largest mining corporations, with operations in Africa, Asia, South and Central America. 

Features

  • Academic specialists and leaders - written by contributors from around the globe offering a diverse and well-rounded perspective of extractive industry practices and its global ramifications
  • Peer-reviewed - all work has been internally peer-reviewed ensuring the quality and merit of the research
  • International application - explores case studies from around the world where the largest mining corporations have set up operations including Africa, Canada, and South and Central America
