Social Licence to Operate (SLO) in the Extractive and Energy Sectors

The concept of social licence to operate (SLO, simply 'social license' or 'social licensing') originated in the mining industry and its use has also been extended over large infrastructure, energy, and industrial projects. In simple terms, the SLO refers to: 1) "the ongoing acceptance of a company or industry's standard business practices and operating procedures by its employees, stakeholders and the general public" (Investopedia 2018) and 2) "the level of acceptance or approval by local communities and stakeholders of mining companies and their operations." (Fraser Institute 2012). Dr. Jędrzej Górski, Dr. Gokce Mete, and Hon. Christine Trenorden invite you to explore the legal dimensions of the controversy surrounding the SLO by contributing to this special edition with unpublished or previously published articles, conference papers, research papers and case studies addressing the SLO and corresponding issues in the Extractive and Energy Sectors.
