Corrosive Capital and Serbian Mining

CIPE in News

On December 17, BBC news published an article covering CIPE and the Center for Contemporary Politics’ research into Chinese copper mining investment in eastern Serbia. Through analysis of the agreement between the Serbian government and the Chinese Zijin Mining Group, CIPE and its partner found Zijin’s Bor-based copper mining complex was exempted from environmental regulations compliance for an indeterminate transition period. The Center for Contemporary Politics’ research into the Zijin Bor Complex is part of CIPE’s larger initiative to combat the impacts of corrosive capital investment in the Western Balkans region.
