This book highlights the role of community trusts in social licencing through the lens of mining and mining disputes in South Africa.

Employing elements of trust, acceptance and elite interaction as a framework, this book critically investigates the underlying dynamics of community development trusts and also the response of host communities to the inherent dilemma of the SLO concept, namely social legitimation versus corporate profits. Looking at formal versus informal regulatory requirements, popular mobilisation, and the interaction between the local population and mining companies, this book constitutes a thorough look at the issues surrounding mining in South Africa and its effect on society.

This book will be of interest to students and scholars of African studies, business in Africa, corporate responsibility, and development studies.
