The podcast series, developed in conversation with academics, economists, lawyers, activists and journalists, explores how risk associated with the supply of Critical Raw Materials is unevenly shaping international relations while perpetuating colonial legacies in Europe’s periphery and the Global South. The discussions aim to look beyond these extractive practices to the possibility of thinking and doing otherwise.
