Featured member - Gustavo R. Espinoza Ramos

Gustavo R. Espinoza Ramos is a PhD student at the University of Westminster. His research explores the contribution of community partnership to the development of Corporate Social Responsibilities (CSR) initiatives in the Peruvian Mining industry that support the approval of the social license to operate. This thesis aims to evaluate the impact of community partnership agreements in order to attain the social license to operate in the mining industry in Peru, to evaluate how legal framework contributes to the community participation during the development of CSR initiatives in the mining industry, to analyse whether the community concerns could develop social, environmental and economic performance indicators in sustainability reports; and to determine the best practices for the development of community partnership agreements.
