Episode 5: Blood Oil Commodities
The interview addresses the problem of clean trade with natural resources. It discusses available concepts of conflict commodities and points to available policies trying to regulate trade with minerals from conflict zones. It presents how political theorists concerned with global justice discuss natural resources and conflicts and what conceptions of clean trade there are and what ideas about global justice underlie them.
