Like many other developing countries hosting multinational
mines in rural communities, Tanzania has not only witnessed
a mushrooming investment in its extractive industry, but has
also experienced continuous contestation and disagreements
between key stakeholders in the industry. This study
demonstrates that analysis of the antagonistic relationship
between multinational mines and communities, offers a
productive way through which deeper understanding of
corporate – community relations, particularly stakeholder
dialogue practices can be developed. The study views this
`battleground‘ as not necessarily a problem. Instead, it
employs an analytical approach to the actions, views and
perspectives of community of place, to offer a locally
grounded construct of stakeholder dialogue.
