CBERN's Ethics of Resource Extraction Cluster will launch a series of five online dialogues in September 2012. The first theme will be human rights in relation to the implementation of CSR policies in the Canadian extractives industry.
During 2011, insight from this preliminary knowledge gaps assessment was synthesized and augmented by a CBERN PhD Research Assistant Claire Woodside
, a PhD Candidate at Carleton University in Ottawa. A strategy to expand discussion through online dialogue was developed drawing on existing models for online multi-stakeholder engagement. A second PhD Research Assistant Olaf Ellefson
will support the online dialogue initiative. Over the course of the series, five themed discussions will be open for three weeks each through the Ethics of Resource Extraction Cluster.
