Extractive Industries Research Group (EIRG)

The Extractive Industries Research Group (EIRG) brings together faculty and graduate students at York University (and beyond) into a multidisciplinary collaborative research group on mining and other extractive industries.
Since forming in the spring of 2007, the group has provided research and organizational support for academic and civil society initiatives concerning the social, political, and environmental impact of these industries around the world.
Recent activities of the group include:
Current members include professors and doctoral students from CERLAC and the departments of Political Science, Environmental Studies, and Osgoode Hall Law School, who meet  to work on related projects, discuss the members' current research, and share resources.
The group's listserv carries information about events, publications, and current developments relating to extractives, and provides a forum for virtual discussion.
Researchers interested in getting involved with EIRG, and/or who wish to subscribe to its listserv, are encouraged to contact for more information.
