Description
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.
