The Law of Public Participation in Mining and Resources Development

Descripción del documento: 
The growth of “public participation” law and practice is one of the most significant occurrences in mining and natural resources development in the late 20th century. And this phenomenon - variously called “public participation,” “citizen involvement,” “stakeholder engagement,” “indigenous peoples’ rights,” “local community concerns,” “NGO intervention,” “access to information,” “access to justice,” “Aarhus rights,” etc. - is predicted to become even more central to the successful, sustainable development of minerals and other resources in the 21st century.
