Dr. Paul Haslam provides an overview of the findings of research by himself and Dr. Nasser Ary Tanimoune into the causes of social conflict between mining firms and local communities in Latin America. Haslam and Ary Tanimoune developed a large database of 642 mining properties in five countries of Latin America, which they were able to link with media reports, censuses and GIS data to permit a fine-grained quantitative analysis of the correlation between various firm, socio-environmental, and population characteristics and social conflict.
Following the keynote address, Haslam, alongside industry experts David Clarry and Olivia Gamache will continue the conversation in a panel discussion and Q&A moderated by Andres Recalde, CIM Toronto Branch Executive.
Paul Haslam is an Associate Professor at the School of International Development and Global Studies,University of Ottawa. His research into resource-based development, mining, and corporate social responsibility has been published in prominent international academic journals including World Development, Development & Change, and the Review of International Political Economy.
