Extractive industries, transparency and citizen engagement (ETCE)2019-01-17T10:28:06+00:00

The CiTRes network aims to examine how transparency, group identity and power are used in the construction of ‘resources’, and in the formation of political subjects, within the context of extraction and governance of natural resources.

In particular, the project aims to develop research that provide insight into how:

  • identities
  • narratives
  • symbols
  • practices

are mobilized and exploited in the process of acquiring more control over valuable natural resources and their revenues. The focus is on the material and discursive struggles over access, control, and meanings of resources, resource revenues, spaces, and landscapes and how these relate to the formation of ‘agency’ through the making of citizenship.

A central element is to incorporate cross scalar notion of power and relationality that expand conventional metric notions of space to examine:
(1) the complex relations between Global Production Networks and local societal development, and (2) how global political interventions, such as initiatives for increased openness (i.e. transparency) in extractive sector management, influence these relations.
