  • Landsat timeseries clip on mine footprint and land use change. A learning tool lead by the University of Nottingham in collaboration with the CSRM consortium team. This short 2 minute video clip uses time series data to show footprint developments and land use change in and around the Porgera Gold Mine in Enga province of Papua New Guinea. The team has used publicly available Landsat data from 1987 to 2017 with input from the PJV team to verify settlement locations. View the video here.
  • Comparative analysis of legal and regulatory frameworks for resettlement in the global mining industry. The primary aim of the report is to understand the mechanisms and instruments that governments are using to manage resettlement risks in the mining sector. Key findings show that the existing international standards have been unevenly incorporated into national frameworks. Download here. Download the accompanying presentation here (.pptx, 3MB).
  • Special Issue of Impact Assessment and Project Appraisal (IAPA) on Resettlement, Displacement and Livelihoods, edited by Professors Frank Vanclay and Deanna Kemp. http://www.tandfonline.com/toc/tiap20/35/1?nav=tocList
  • Paper ‘Global Perspectives on the State of Resettlement Practice in Mining’. This paper was published in the Special Issue of Impact Assessment and Project Appraisal (IAPA). We examine how international policy commitments are operationalised by the mining sector and how practitioners from across the institutional spectrum engage with planning and implementation efforts by the industry. http://www.tandfonline.com/doi/pdf/10.1080/14615517.2016.1271544
  • Paper ‘Social Management Capability, Human Migration and the Global Mining Industry’. This paper was published in the journal Resources Policy. As the title suggests, this paper focuses on developing capacity across the industry on issues like resettlement and in-migration. The article will be available in advanced proof stage in about one month, at which point we will share with the Consortium. See http://www.sciencedirect.com/science/article/pii/S0301420717301794
  • Paper ‘The Weakness of Resettlement Safeguards in Mining’. This paper was published in the journal Forced Migration Review, which is a journal hosted by Oxford University’s Refugee Studies Program. See http://www.miningresettlement.org/elibrary/the-weakness-of-resettlement-safeguards-in-mining. We explore whether current planning practices can safeguard against the risks associated with displacement and resettlement, and whether industry practice is consistent with the responsibility to respect human rights.
  • An introductory workbook on Resettlement and Economic Displacement. A/Prof John Owen delivered this workshop to 20 senior non-social performance professionals from Newcrest’s global operations last month, as part of a week-long program at UQ on Social Performance Leadership. This resource has been shared with Consortium members.
