Mining, Law and Equity: Challenges and Opportunities

The Law, Environment and Development Centre (LEDC), SOAS-University of London is organising a one day workshop on Mining, Law and Equity on 19 May 2014 at SOAS.

Mining is at the very centre of the process of development because it is seen as a key driver of economic development while often having disastrous human and/or environmental consequences. It has escaped significant policy attention for a long time because mining often takes place in the remotest areas inhabited by people who are usually the least able to assert their rights legally or politically. In addition, the environmental and/or human consequences may not be immediately visible, necessitating legal frameworks to address long-term consequences.

This workshop will explore a broad set of law, policy and governance issues. It will bring together a mix of researchers, lawyers, campaigners, and professionals from UK, Europe and Asia to take this debate forward.
