FIAR Vol. 15.2 (Dec. 2022) Struggles over Mining and Territory in Latin America

The nexus between extractivist activities, mining conflicts and territory has become increasingly visible and discussed both in social movements and local struggles as well as in academic debates, especially in Latin America (Göbel y Ulloa 15). Considering the role and impact of mining as well as the emerging field of research, this special issue sets out to show and analyze the specificities of current struggles in the mining sector and territorial tensions that have been created in Latin America, and develop and change longside institutional settings and current dynamics of global demand and discourses.
