GOMIAM’s specific expertise on social conflict in small-scale gold mining is based on academic fieldwork throughout the entire Amazon. GOMIAM has a multidisciplinary team, consisting of social scientists as well as geologists and engineers. GOMIAM’s publications vary from academic to journalistic, and grasp various subjects and case studies.

The first phase of the GOMIAM project, from 2011 to 2013, has been dedicated to a comparative analysis of socio-political and environmental conflicts related to small-scale gold mining in the Amazon. Our research acknowledges the economic motivations and cultural dimensions of the people involved in these conflicts.

In the second phase (from 2013 to 2016), we were more focused on sharing and exchanging our knowledge, to create a knowledge network and to share our policy briefs. GOMIAM also has a database of small-scale gold mining related articles. If you are interested in accessing our database, please contact us about the possibilities.
