Dr. Bebbington will discuss findings from his and his colleagues’ recent research on extractive industry governance since the late 19th century in Bolivia, Ghana, Peru, and Zambia. The conversation will explore the commonalities and patterns in how natural resources have been governed across these countries, focusing especially on the influence of national political settlements, global commodity chains, and changing ideas about natural resources and development. Dr. Bebbington will speak to the implications for strategies that seek to improve this governance through collective action and influence.

 

Please join us for this conversation with Dr. Bebbington as we critically examine the findings from this work, and discuss the potential implications of this work for civil society advocacy and natural resource justice.  Click here to RSVP
