Unmet Promises of Extractive Industries in Africa

Unmet Promises of Extractive Industries in AfricaUnmet Promises of Extractive Industries in Africa, by Charles Chilufya SJ and Sr. Catherine Nsiami (Rigobert Minani SJ) (Nairobi: Paulines Publications Africa, 2017) 144 pages. ISBN: 9966-60-082-0.

Corporate social responsibility deals with a company’s sense of responsibility towards the community and environment, both ecological and social, in which it operates. In the wake of the failure of mining-led development to procure the development promised, Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) has been proposed as one major way to leverage the role of business in development. This booklet written by Rev. Fr. Charles Chilufya SJ and Professor Sr. Catherine Nsiami is a critical diagnosis of the environmental dialogue in the context of Corporate Social Responsibility (CSR) of mining companies in Kitwe (Zambia) and Katanga (DRC). There is thus the need for a critical approach to the strengths and limitations of CSR, one that poses questions that have been unasked or neglected. There is further need for critical perspectives to understand what CSR does, and what it could mean for the poor and marginalised in developing countries.
