The Yale Extractive Industries Working Group (YaleXWG) is a campus-wide student group focused on the economic, social, and environmental dimensions of extractive industries. We are interested in the intersection of natural resource extraction and international development and organize meetings around a wide array of topics including revenue transparency, environmental impacts, international performance standards and industry best practices, public health, activism, legal tools, and stakeholder participation to name a few. The group encourages interdisciplinary collaboration between students and practitioners on current or proposed mining projects and conducting research.

Leaders:
