Keynote Address

Un-natural resources

Barbara Harriss-White

While natural resources are substances that can be exploited by society, the term un-natural resources draws attention to natural resources that are exploited – and landscapes created – through the criminal violation of laws intended to regulate the economic processes of extraction. The propositions that these crimes may be unpunished – and even incentivised – because they supply the financial preconditions for electoral democracy and because political immunity protects criminal accumulation, are explored in this paper. Four case studies: illegal coal mining and un-doused subterranean fires in Jharkhand, illegal sand-mining in Tamil Nadu and hydro-criminality in Arunachal Pradesh, India, reveal social relations of criminality in the extraction of resources for the energy and construction sectors, the relations between criminal accumulation and party political funding and behaviour. They also alter the orthodox narratives of local politics in the states studied in ways examined in the paper.
