This Special Issue of CCS Journal investigates this phenomenon of ‘new’ extractivism, focusing on its civil society dimensions. How is civil society re-patterned by extractivism? What social technologies are being developed by extractivist corporates to enable civil society participation in their projects? What tensions or contradictions emerge in this nexus? How may these tensions, understood dialectically, generate new constituencies in civil society, lead to failed extractivist projects, and open-up the potential for wider post-extractivist futures?

The issue is co-edited by (and in alphabetical order): Professor Fidelis Allen, Professor James Goodman and Professor Armindo dos Santos de SousaTeodósio.
