Featured member - Jan Lust

Jan Lust has a Ph.D. in Development Studies and is a university professor in Lima (Peru) at the Universidad Ricardo Palma and the Pontificia Universidad Católica del Perú. He teaches courses related to globalization and social and economic development in Peru. His research is focused on the dynamics and particularities of Peruvian capitalist development in the last thirty-five years.

Jan has a specific interest in extractive industries as economic development in Peru has been historically determined by the prices and the demand for the country’s abundant mineral resources. As a matter of fact, in last years the mining sector has turned into one the principal motors for economic growth. In relation to this sector, Jan has published on issues related to the Peruvian mining boom (2005-2011), Peruvian governmental policies on mining, the struggle of the Peruvian indigenous and peasant communities against transnational mining corporations, and corporate social responsibility.
