Research event of the Chair
The third seminar of the cycle entitled "Governance of mining/quarrying projects and consultation" (Project A) took place on Friday, June 25, 2021.

It gathered more than 20 participants around the question "Tailings, what are the stakes for the mineral industry? "

Four major witnesses brought their points of view, through feedback on a metropolitan and international scale, on current and historical extraction and transformation projects: Odile Bruneel (IRD, HydroSciences Montpellier), Armand Dubus (IMERYS), Valentin Goujon and Sylvain Le Berre (INRAE).

The exchanges allowed to question the definition of the term "residues" and to raise some issues:
  • Residues or Sterile?
  • Waste or Resources?
  • Opportunity or Burden?
These questions were discussed under the angle of common issues, beyond the diversity of materials: 
  • Residues: a water issue;
  • Residues: a soil issue;
  • Residues: an innovation issue. 

The next seminar should take place in the fall of 2021, ideally in person. A questionnaire has been sent to the partners in order to collect suggestions for change in light of the first three editions of these seminars. All partners are of course invited to express their opinions and proposals at any time, in any format (a few lines to a long text);

The second seminar of the cycle entitled "Governance of mining/quarrying projects and consultation" (Project A) took place on Monday, March 29, 2021.

It brought together some thirty participants to reflect on "social risk".

Three key witnesses contributed their points of view, based on international experience with mining and oil projects: Sylvia Becerra (CNRS-Geosciences Environnement Toulouse), Pierre-Yves Le Meur (IRD-CIRAD) and Pascal Rey (Insuco).

The exchanges allowed us to question the concept of "social risk" by underlining the great volatility of this notion, which is very dependent on the contexts in which it is used. In particular, the temporality of "social risk" was questioned:
  • at what stage in the life cycle of a mining project does "social risk" express itself most forcefully? 
  • how can the lived experience of social risk be reconciled with the operational time of the project? 
  • how does "social risk" relate to the history of the territories? These questions led to a lively debate on the measurement of social risk: can we measure social risk? 
These questions led to a lively debate on the measurement of social risk: can we measure social risk? Is it desirable to measure it?

The next seminar should take place between now and June, ideally in person. Several proposals for seminar themes are proposed. All partners are of course invited to express their opinions and proposals at any time, in any format (a few lines to a long text).

Research project "Governance of mining/quarry projects and consultation"

      First workshop on 11 December 2020

Concertation and mining exploration in metropolitan France, exchanges for new perspectives 
 
The first seminar of the cycle entitled "Governance of mining projects and consultation" took place on Friday 11 December. It was attended by some thirty participants who are partners of the Chair. Three real and contemporary cases of exploration projects in metropolitan France were presented by Cécile Caron, Diana Guillon (DGALN), Jérôme Gouin (Pôle Avenia) and Noémie Fayol (Mines Ales). These feedbacks have given rise to a very rich debate, and the Chair thanks the participating partners for their interventions and the relevant exchanges that took place. This debate calls into question key notions, starting for example with the notions of "territory", "consultation" and "acceptability", in order to pave the way for a new paradigm that will enable territorial stakeholders to grasp the issues related to the exploitation of the subsoil and encourage the emergence of new forms of decision-making. The next seminar will take place between now and March 2021. Several proposals for seminar themes have already been put forward by the partners.
