sharing in governance of extractive industries

The Politics of Extractive Industries

The Columbia Center on Sustainable Investment (CCSI) has launched an Executive Session on the Politics of Extractive Industries. Building off of a traditional "Executive Session" model, this Executive Session is a policy innovation lab led by leading academics and practitioners from across the world. The expert group is grappling with the ways in which power, interests, incentives, and characteristics of political systems shape how extractive industry projects are developed, the impacts of governance interventions, and the ultimate outcomes of both. The purpose of this group is to produce practical insights, new strategies and tangible guidance to address a major challenge confronting all those hoping to improve outcomes from extractive industry development: the political aspects of the governance of the sector. The expert group met for the first time in September, and the members are now in the process of developing papers, projects and partnerships to advance the work of the group. Updates and outcomes of the executive session will be posted on our website.

We would love to hear about your experiences.  How have the political aspects of governance impacted the efficacy of your work or issues you care about?

I have developped a course on geopolitical aspect of the mining industry, based on classic geopolitical interpretations of Mckinder and Mahan: its explain the division between mining and seapower (mines on the coast, open market...) on one side and mining and heartland (mines on the silk road, centralized empires...) on the other side. These 2 strategies are implying different behaviour of the mining industry and local political equilibrium...
