Engagement: participants’ stories
We asked conference participants to tell us where, how and with whom they ‘engaged’ in their research and/or activism around resource politics. We got plenty of contributions to our world map, which we’ve turned into an online version.
Conference participants will receive updates when these are posted: if you didn’t attend, you can sign up to the STEPS newsletter for updates.
