Funded by a grant from the Economic and Social Research Council through their South East Doctoral Training Centre, this two-day, student-led conference will bring together and foster dialogue between PhD students, academic researchers, and practitioners in order to explore pathways to realising the development potential of the extractive industries (mining, oil and gas) in sub-Saharan Africa as well as the challenges with doing so.
Participants will gain from the opportunity to network, present their work and engage in breakout groups and a panel discussion with peers, leading academics and industry practitioners; hear the real-life experiences of a Ghanaian small-scale miner, and, as part of a special issue; have the opportunity to publish their paper in The Extractive Industries and Society, An International Journal. Various UK travel and accommodation grants are available for eligible participants
