Contribution to the project

Rafael Domínguez is an expert on natural resource policy and development. His recent work has focused on the possibilities and limits of resource nationalism. Results of his research show that tax systems and resource extraction interact closely. For Extractivism.de, he analyzes cases such as Colombia or Ecuador, where historical experiences and recent upheavals have brought the taxation of resource extraction back into the discussion.
