Location: Room C-103, Hesburgh Center for International Studies (View on map )

The Universidad del Pacífico (UP) recently completed an intensive, novel study of Peru’s National Society of Mining, Oil, and Energy (SNMPE), and identified social performance issues being addressed by the mining industry in Peru, as well as significant industry changes that have occurred since the year 2000. Gonzalo Delgado, director of the Center for Mining and Sustainability Studies (CEMS) at UP, will present the highlights of this study, and the many intriguing, international implications it has for broader energy fields of work and research.

Undergraduate and graduate students, faculty, and postdoctoral researchers from all disciplines are welcome and encouraged to attend this event. Lunch and refreshments will be provided.
