Szablowski examines how conflicts between mining companies and local communities have emerged worldwide as an urgent and intractable problem that has stimulated competing regulatory efforts at local, national, and global scales. The book is centered on a rich case study of a conflict between a Canadian-owned mining project in Peru and local Andean indigenous communities.
