Event Description

The Hekima Institute of Peace Studies and International Relations (HIPSIR), of Hekima University
College, Nairobi, Kenya, will be holding a two-day international conference on 4-5 October 2016 on
resource extraction in Africa with the focus on addressing conflicts and integrating sustainable
development. This is in the light of new resource discoveries in the continent and the negative
experiences too often in the past. The conference will explore the implications of resource extraction on
economic development, environmental sustainability, community participation, revenue distribution,
transparency, human rights observance, potential and existing community conflicts, legal frameworks and
exit strategies. Discussions at the conference will highlight existing best practices that give evidence of
improvement of quality of life from resource extraction, and the opportunities that the extractive
industries create, while equally raising caution on practices that alienate parts of the population, propagate corruption and degrade the environment. The outcome of these discussion will be useful for policy formulation and implementation as well as for advocacy and inter-stakeholder conflict resolution
mechanisms.
