Description :
The paper explores several ways in which the extraction of mineral and hydrocarbon resources is constitutive of wider capitalist political, economic and institutional arrangements. Drawing on material from el Salvador and the Andean countries, the paper explores the contemporary governance of extractive industries, and points to significant convergence among the approaches taken by neoliberal and post-neoliberal regimes. The paper highlights the ways in which activist political ecologists play important roles in counter-movements seeking to re-govern the extractive economy.
