CRG Resource Extraction in Africa

For researchers working on resource extraction in Africa, a major challenge concerns the need to collaborate across disciplines and fields of expertise: the world of resource extraction can best be understood if knowledge can be combined and the study of past and present extractive practices thus requires a bundling of expertise. This CRG serves to facilitate this.



CRG Coordinators:

Sabine Luning
Leiden University, The Netherlands

Robert Pijpers
University of Hamburg, Germany
