In a study by Ernst and Young, the ‘license to operate’ was identified as the number one business risk for the mining and metal sector (Mitchell, Downham, & Van Dinter, 2018). Changing societal expectations have influenced the way industries, like mining, conduct their operations around the world (Moffat, Lacey, Zhang, & Leipold, 2016).

mining industry has been defined, this…

The political and socio-economic conditions of the four member states of the Mano River Union (MRU: Côte d´Ivoire, Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone) are shaped largely by mineral and natural resources. In this context, it is promising that all four states have begun reforming their minerals sectors in recent years.

With this, I feel motivated to allow the public the opportunity to download one of my personal struggles. This instalment relates to getting a grade one place for my daughter in 2010…
