New Research Group on the Territories of Extraction

Posted on Wednesday, August 16, 2017

The growth of the extractive industry on a global scale is the source of an increasing number of socio-environmental conflicts and rights claims from Indigenous peoples.

The objective of the Interdisciplinary Research Group on the Territories of Extraction (IRGTE) is to develop a common and socially significant research program on these issues. It is comprised of an interdisciplinary team of professors and students from the Faculty of Social Sciences (anthropology, development studies and globalization, political science and sociology) and the Faculty of Law, whose research interests span the range of socio-environmental issues raised by the extractive industry.
