Conflicts in marginal locations: Small-scale gold-mining in the Amazon

Research output: Chapter in Book / Report / Conference proceedingChapterAcademicpeer-review

Abstract

Conflicts of different nature surround the activity of small scale gold mining. After first addressing some of these conflicts, we subsequently focus on how the fact that the activity often takes place in remote and marginal areas, influences the ways these conflicts emerge and develop. We distinguish four different takes on the issue, and discuss each of these on the basis of case studies in Peru and Surinam. We finally suggest some general conclusions about the role of geographical and political distance as a structural feature in the conflicts around gold mining.
