Overview

Extracting Justice takes a fresh look at an essential theme for Latin America’s social and economic development - how natural resources are governed and struggled over. It explores the argument that, in order for natural resource extraction to respond to the broader needs of society, natural resource governance has to accommodate the three dimensions of justice - redistribution, recognition and representation - reasonably well.This means that there have to be democratic and participatory mechanisms - or political spaces - in order for civil society to be able to influence the ways in which resources are governed. Case studies written by geographers, sociologists, political scientists and economists, focusing on different sectors and countries, will provide empirical detail and contribute to the overall conclusions. In this way the book will be of interest to social scientists, students and policy makers interested in the connections between natural resources, politics and development.
