Transnational Governance Experiments: From Climate Change to Mining and the Minerals Life Cycle
As the scale of mining and minerals use has increased, so too have environmental, human rights and security controversies associated with them. Like climate change and energy challenges, the minerals life cycle now plays host to a growing number of new and emerging governance initiatives including codes of conduct, certification and labeling, financing schemes, joint public-private-civil society goal setting, and so on. How can we map and systematically compare such governance experiments? Can we identify, compare and assess the impacts of the proliferating set of initiatives and new forms of governance around issues like climate change and energy goals, extractive industries and resource consumption and efficiencies?
