Abstract:The increased mining activity in developing countries by multinational companies searching for rich new deposits at a time when 'good governance' and the adoption of voluntary measures have transformed the regulatory landscape has led to a complex struggle between the State, companies, workers and communities. These have been rendered more complex by the addition of new players including non-governmental watchdog organizations. This special issue of 'Labour, Capital and Society' explores labour and community struggles around natural resource extraction within the context of changing regulatory frameworks. Articles on Africa: Petrocapitalism, neoliberalism, labour and community mobilization in Nigeria (Femi Aborisade); Comparing duelling approaches to the transformation of South African mining: corporate social responsibility or labour restructuring? (Suzanne Dansereau); État-faible et revisitation des contrats miniers en RDC: une transparence impossible (Modeste Mba Talla); State, mining and the community: the case of Basarwa of the Central Kalahari Game Reserve in Botswana (Motsomi Ndala Marobela).
