Special Section of Viewpoints: Harnessing extractive industries for development in sub-Saharan Africa #EX4DEV16

Introduction to workshop viewpoints: Harnessing extractive industries for development in sub-Saharan Africa #EX4DEV16 

  • This collection of short papers share viewpoints on the theme of Harnessing Extractive Industries for Development in sub-Saharan Africa: https://doi.org/10.1016/j.exis.2017.06.008
  • It is the output of a workshop by the same name held in June 2016 at the University of Surrey: http://goo.gl/uGfSqQ
  • The workshop captured views on extractives-led development and perspectives on the resource curse that has blighted the region for decades.
  • This paper introduces and summarises both the workshop and collection of papers which are now available online (see below) and will be published in print later this year in the Extractive Industries and Society journal. 
  • The workshop and papers aim to help practitioners reach a wider academic audience, stimulate further debate and spark the potential for collaboration.
  • The second interdisciplinary workshop EX4DEV17 will be held on the 2nd November 2017 at Royal Holloway, University of London and is accepting applications from participants and paper presentations now: https://ex4dev.com/
  • Thank you to all workshop participants and contributors to the special section.
