KAPTalks with Anthony Bebbington on Natural resource extraction after COVID
Join LIVE our special #KAPTalks with the Ford Foundation International Director Anthony Bebbington. The event will be fully hybrid - online and physically at the University of Utrecht. Join us on 10th September at 14:00 CET / 12:00 GMT.

The lecture is hosted by the University of Utrecht.
Global Witness’s annual reports on the killings of environmental defenders are but one, awful, indication of the social injustices that can accompany the extraction of natural resources from the subsoil and from forests. The struggle for social justice in these environments has become yet more difficult under COVID, all the more so given the impacts of COVID on indigenous populations in many of these environments. These challenges seem likely to intensify downstream of COVID in the face of economic reactivation policies, closing civic space, the search for energy transition minerals, and a politics of urgency that risks undermining a politics of social justice. In this talk I explore some of these trends and the challenges they present to civil society and to philanthropies that support civil society. I will refer especially to the experience of the Ford Foundation, while also making a broader argument.
