Conflict and Coexistence in the Extractive Industries
This event will mark the launch of the forthcoming Chatham House Report Conflict and Coexistence in the Extractive Industries by Paul Stevens, Jaakko Kooroshy, Glada Lahn, and Bernice Lee. Drawing on analysis of a database spanning more than 40 years of international arbitrations records and a set of extensive regional case studies, the report analyses the changing nature of company-government relations and examines the rising tensions in the sector.
The authors will present the findings of the report, which argues that against a background of uncertain markets and mounting environmental and social pressures, tensions around the sector are set to escalate. If left unchecked, they could threaten billions of dollars in investments – as well as the development prospects of many resource-rich countries.
The presentation will be followed by a high-level panel discussion, focusing on critical interventions to enhance the relationship between host countries and extractives companies.
Attendance at this event is by invitation only.
