How do resources and their extraction contribute to shaping societies, global connections and individual lifeworlds? This question, often formulated in different ways, has been the concern of decades of social science research. Through short and accessible contributions, Resource Worlds (which was launched in 2016) presents, communicates and engages this research with a wider public. Of course we invite all visitors  of Resource Worlds to leave a comment or suggestion.

If you are interested in contributing to Resource Worlds, or you have other questions, please visit our section Contributions & Questions or contact us directly via info(at)
