Who Benefits? Complex Relationships of Oil Companies and Indigenous Communities in Alaska
Thursday, October 29, 2020
Governance of oil in the North Slope of Alaska involves multiple actors that share oil rent with local communities. This presentation will focus on benefit-sharing arrangements between oil companies, native corporations, the North Slope Borough, and Indigenous Peoples. We will look at how benefit-sharing arrangements are organized and implemented, and how this affects procedural and distributive equity. Procedural equity is associated with indigenous communities participation in decision-making.
