Governing ResOurce UrbanisaTion (GROUT): Multi-stakeholder governance of extractive industries in the era of planetary urbanisation

Project description

A new take on mining projects advancing close to urban areas

We are living in the urban era. In Europe, two thirds of the population reside in cities, which makes resource urbanisation governance (RUG) – a new theoretical field – important. The EU-funded GROUT project will focus on analysing and advancing this field; moreover, it will tackle the governance challenges posed by mining projects advancing close to urban areas, aiming to improve knowledge and expertise. Furthermore, it will study the transformations affecting women (narratives and demands as well as power imbalances). As a fellowship, it will be carried out at the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM) at the University of Queensland (UQ), Australia. In Sydney, the project will combine qualitative interviews and observations as well as participative methodologies to analyse power relations and environmental justice.
