By Chris Huggins. Disputes and dispossession of property rights in the mining sector are causes of injustice, violence and forced resettlement around the world. This comprehensive volume examines mining, particularly what is often called ‘Artisanal and Small-Scale Mining’ from a perspective of governance and rights. It focuses on rights to land, natural resources and other forms of material property. Many projects, policies and laws targeting artisanal and small-scale mining are embedded in problematic conceptual and institutional frameworks that implicitly stigmatise and discipline artisanal and small-scale miners. This collection takes a critical look at notions of property to destabilise some of these frameworks. Hardcover; 152 pp; 2019; ISBN 9780367236731.
