Social Science and the Mining Sector: Contemporary Roles and Dilemmas for Engagement

Published by: Berghahn Books

This chapter moves from the conceptual to the practical by considering where and how social science - informed research is being commissioned and undertaken, and its recommendations implemented (or not) in the mining sector. We consider the changing role and influence that social science has had on large-scale mining-related development, focusing in particular on mining in the Asia Pacific region.
