Keluar dari Ketergantungan Timah: Mencari Ekonomi Alternatif dan Berkelanjutan di Belitung
Topic: Extractive Industry Governance
Editor: Nanang Indra Kurniawan
In this book the reader will find two major segments. The first segment is writings that attempt to emphasize the attractiveness of Belitung as an island that is rich in natural resources. The writings in this first segment are structured in order to help the parties in Belitung to promote the various uniqueness that exist on this island to a wide audience and to outline the important lessons the writers got from their visit to Belitung. The second segment contains writings that attempt not only to reflect but also to analyze social and political dynamics in Belitung.
It is hoped that the written contributions in this book will bring new discussions to understand economic diversification and the transition of extractive to non-extractive economies as well as negotiations and conflict tensions therein. It is hoped that this book will become a kind of lesson learned and new hope for the people who are currently struggling to come up with an alternative economy beyond the extractive economy.
