Keynote speakers

For each of the five main topics we have identified a keynote speaker to launch the debate. Each such presentation will be followed by two contributions that respond to it but from a different perspective. For example, on the first topic (the activity of mining) a keynote presentation given by a representative of a mining company could be followed by contributions from a researcher and a government representative.

Parallel workshops

Workshops will be based on the five topics and selected papers and will involve presentations by different types of actors (not only researchers). The workshops will operate on a ‘discussant’ system.

Site visit

A site visit will be organised to one of the mining sites in New Caledonia for the purpose of illustrating the different aspects of mining (extraction, transformation, impact, regulation, rules of engagement, strategies of actors from communities hosting mining activities).
