Julie Fortin's thesis defense 04 Février 2022

Summary of the thesis:  

Based on fieldwork conducted in Eeyou Istchee and Nunavik, this thesis sheds light on lesser-known facets of the social acceptability of mining projects in an Aboriginal context, particularly their impacts on the social cohesion of communities. From a multidisciplinary perspective, the thesis provides an understanding of the social and emotional impacts of mining development for local communities, as well as the challenges encountered during their exchanges with mining exploration companies.
