Managing the Political and Social Risks of Mining Operations in Africa

About this talk

Coinciding with its emergence as a major frontier for mining exploration, Africa has entered a period of political transition that carries profound implications for natural resources investors. While the colonial legacies of corruption, weak states, and irregular transfers of power persist, a new generation of political leaders more responsive to domestic constituencies and more assertive in relation to external investors is also making its mark. This generational shift on the African continent dovetails with broader geopolitical and normative changes that demand the adoption of mutually beneficial approaches to investment and business engagement. This presentation will offer insights on a range of non-technical challenges confronting investors on the continent and will introduce principles to employ in assessing and mitigating these risks.
