With Asia as its backdrop, this book critically investigates the particular role played by the World Bank Group (WBG) in both conceptualising and promoting new mining regimes tailored for resource-rich country clients. Building on case studies located in the Philippines, Laos and Mongolia, the book details a particular politics of mining in the Global South characterised by the transplanting, hijacking and contesting of the WBG’s mining agenda in national and local arenas.
