New Strategies: Extractivist Corporations, Communities, and the State In A Post-COVID World

January 27 @ 12:30 pm - 2:30 pm

9:30 AM to 11:30 AM (PST) / 12:30 PM to 2:30 PM (EST)

The struggles of social movements and communities against extractive multinational corporations have stalled or cancelled major projects, threatening company profits. In response, corporations have developed new strategies to undermine the opposition to their projects. Join us for a panel discussion with leading academic and policy researchers on these new strategies that extractive industry corporations have developed to secure and expand their operations despite organized resistance to mining, drilling, and other megaprojects.

Panelists

  • Anna Zalik: Associate Professor of Environmental Studies, York University
  • Jennifer Moore: Associate Fellow of Global Economy, Institute for Policy Studies
  • Maiah Jaskoski: Associate Professor of Political Science, Northern Arizona University
  • Fernando Leiva: Professor of Latin America and Latino Studies, UC Santa Cruz
