T18P23 - Corporate Social Responsibility Policies and Natural Resource Governance
- Prof. Evren Tok, firstname.lastname@example.org
Prof. Jason McSparren
Prof. Tim Shaw
This panel will look at the private sector actors and their historical contribution to improving political and economic governance, as well as to capacity-building in natural resources management in comparative perspective. It will evaluate those areas where the private sector fails to bring about improvements in political and economic governance, and instead might hamper development. Various papers in the panel will contribute to the debate around private sector engagement in natural resources management in the past, present and future. It will look at, not only mining and mineral resources, but will also include land and water, which received minimal coverage in the preliminary literature review findings.
Finally, the panel will contribute to the understanding of the role of the private sector in conflict and post-conflict settings, particularly in terms of its contribution to natural resources governance and CSR policies. This remains an under-studied field of research, and much could be gained from comparing and evaluating the different roles that the private sector played in natural resources governance.
