Abstract

Is there a collective alternative vision emerging from the thousands of people involved in mining conflicts worldwide? Are the people involved in such conflicts promoters and practitioners of more sustainable economies? And if they oppose predatory forms of economic growth, aren’t they the ‘natural allies’ of the degrowth movement? Examining these questions will be crucial for understanding the changing nature of commodity frontiers and their eventual possible dissolution.
