Regulating Small-Scale Mining: State Strategies and Coercion?
Watch the Webinar
Artisanal and small-scale mining (ASM), mostly lead by rural communities, poses a significant challenge to resource-dependent economies where resource control is fundamental for state coffers. ASM activities are under regulated by any state body, and they bring about serious environmental, health and labor problems.
State strategies to implement regulation of ASM have varied widely and are handled differently in every country. Although the challenges posed by ASM are the same, state responses vary from cooperative strategies to coercive strategies.
Join The School of Public Policy and the Extractive Resource Governance Program for this upcoming webinar, where our panelists will discuss which approach is most effective in addressing the challenges posed by ASM, and address specific approaches taken by different jurisdictions in South America.
