The Missing Ethics of Mining | 02/26/13
Shefa Siegel
There is a maddening futility about speaking of "mining," as if it were singular or coherent. It is like talking about "Africa" or addressing the "international community" in the fashion of humanitarians, as if it is all one big thing. Rather, there are many mining industries, and each has its own culture, directives, structure, purpose, and pathologies. » Publications » Ethics & International Affairs » Table of Contents and Excerpt from Ethics & International Affairs Volume 27.1 (Spring 2013) » Table of Contents and Excerpt from Ethics & International Affairs, Volume 27.1 (Spring 2013)
