Critical Perspectives on Resource Extraction Governance

The symposium will address these questions. Who are the actors in resource extraction? What power relationships can we identify and how important is it to think about these relationships? What power relationships do resource extraction industries reveal, reinforce, and create at the local, national, and/or international levels? What is the role of law in the power dynamics generated by resource extraction activities? How can one think about recalibrating the balance of power in an international, national, or local context? What role does the state play?

Perspectives critiques sur l’extractivisme et enjeux

French

Le colloque abordera les questions suivantes. Qui sont les acteurs de l’extractivisme? Quels rapports de force entretiennent-ils et en quoi est-il important de réfléchir à ces rapports? Quels rapports de force les activités extractives révèlent, renforcent, créent à l’échelle locale, nationale ou internationale? Quel est le rôle du droit dans les dynamiques de pouvoir générées par les activités extractives? Comment peut-on penser le rééquilibrage des rapports de force dans un contexte international, national ou local, et quel rôle l’État joue-t-il dans ce contexte?
