1. Barrett, Mark. Dedevelopment .

Degree: 2009, Royal Roads University

The state of the planet was briefly examined from economic, social, and environmental perspectives. The examination showed that the world has largely come under a single development paradigm and that the situation this paradigm has led us to is unsustainable and inequitable. There have been a number of efforts to set the planet on a different path to sustainability and social justice but so far they have failed to gain sufficient momentum to achieve change on a scale commensurate with the magnitude and urgency of the problem. The author contends that these efforts for change might be more effective if they could be united under a common, global theme or objective sharing common principles. The research suggests that the idea of dedevelopment might arise as a theme around which many of the movements seeking sustainability and social justice could unite. The author further attempts to show the form dedevelopment might take. The deepening of the current economic and climate crises which has occurred since this research was conducted serves to reinforce the author's argument for the necessity and urgency of a change in the current development paradigm. Advisors/Committee Members: Dale, Ann, 1948- (advisor).

2. Hohn, Michelle. Investing in community : Canadian junior mining companies, corporate social responsibility, and the communication gap .

Degree: 2009, Royal Roads University

Drawing on experience as a communications consultant to the junior mining industry, this research emerged from my observations that anti-mining, non-governmental organization (NGO) campaigns are currently winning the public relations war against the mining industry. Increasing global awareness and anti-mining sentiment may be due in part to a lack of communication on behalf of mining companies with respect to corporate social responsibility (CSR) and specifically community investment activities in developing countries. I sought to investigate what community investment initiatives a sample of Canadian junior exploration companies are conducting and the root causes for a possible CSR communication gap or “reporting silence” in this regard, which, if remedied, could potentially help balance this negative publicity. Results from interviews with mining company executives, industry CSR practitioners, and investment fund managers identified a number of factors contributing to a community investment communication gap, and reflect upon the multiplicity of stakeholder audiences with complex and divergent information needs. My thesis concludes with recommendations as to how junior exploration companies and industry CSR practitioners might consider community investment in developing countries through a complexity science lens to explore collaborative solutions in addressing these communication gaps. Advisors/Committee Members: Dale, Ann, 1948- (advisor).
