Founded in 2019 and launched in 2020 at the University of Helsinki, EXALT, The Global Extractivisms and Alternatives Initiative, is a research programme focusing on political-ecological and political-economic aspects of global extractivisms and associated socio-environmental crises, including climate change. EXALT pursues detailed empirical research of ecologically and socio-economically destructive forms of natural resource extraction around the globe, and of the transformative alternatives to them. Our focus is on natural-resource politics, although we are actively engaged in discussions of further applications of the concept beyond the traditional areas of natural resource extraction. EXALT offers critical social-scientific analyses of extractivism as one of the most problematic issues of our time and of key importance for managing pressing global problems.
