Determining whether extractive industries are an opportunity or area of concern requires a social and political discussion. Anthony Bebbington, the Milton P. and Alice C. Higgins Professor of Environment and Society at Clark’s Graduate School of Geography and a member of the U.S. National Academy of Sciences, has spent years researching the gains and losses that come with extractives, and the impact on communities across the globe. Though Bebbington grew up in a mining community, his path to researching extractives was indirect.
Bebbington also acts as the International Program Director, Natural Resources and Climate Change at the Ford Foundation.
