sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

As parliamentary elections approach, Pooja Chatterjee and Daniel Gilbert write: "India and the world ardently hopes for far better climate change fare from its politicians than is currently being served up by both the BJP and the INC." Nonetheless, Chatterjee and Gilbert acknowledge, India is moving away from its reputation as a roadblock in the global push to tackle climate change. Read more.

As part of that push, a World Bank-GIZ-CCSI-FFI collaborative will host a workshop on "Minerals for Climate Action: Why Smart Mining is Important for Afr... on 4 February as a side event to the African Mining Indaba in Cape Town, South Africa.

And in March, AusIMM, the Australian Centre for Sustainable Mining Practices (ACSMP), and the University of NSW will jointly host the 9th international conference on Sustainable Development in the Minerals Industry (SDIMI) 2019.

Meanwhile, Henri-Claude Enoumba responds to Thomas Lassourd's question on whether the Democratic Republic of Congo's new mining fiscal regime is up to the task.

And OGEL Journal calls for papers for a forthcoming special issue of Transnational Dispute Management. The three topics are "Maritime Law Arbitration," "The United States-Mexico-Canada agreement," and  "International Investment and Competition Law in the Global South."

These and more jobs, blogs, photos, videos, and discussions on GOXI.
