Back | Project: Young Scholars Think Piece Series

First Edition: Extractive Industries and Social Development

  • Project from: 2014 to ----

Calls for contributions to the Young Scholars Think Piece Series take place in thematically organized, time-bound editions. This current first edition had a submission period from February to 21 March 2014 and was based on the theme of Extractive Industries and Social Development.

To enable young scholars to feed into debates in this field, UNRISD invited think pieces on issues relevant to social development in mineral-rich contexts and/or related to extractive industries such as:
  • Human rights
  • Environment
  • Business/Corporate Social Responsibility
  • Migration
  • Gender
  • Children
  • Social Policy
  • Social Development
  • Communities/Local Development
  • Indigenous Peoples
