Mining Affected Communities from Odisha to Zambia

The impact of coal and aluminium mining is studied in two regions of the world by two academic activists, Eastern India and Zambia. The discussion will draw comparisons between these two resource-rich regions and examines the idea of the resource curse. Based on recent fieldwork and successful campaiging both by communities and activists the seminar will outline methods of activist practice and steps to challenge carbon emissions in an increasingly fragile world.
