Abstract and Keywords

This chapter evaluates how engagement with the periphery in economic geography has come to intersect with resource geographies. This intersection of resources and the periphery as ‘resource peripheries’ has structured models of economic development that have had a performative effect on the development strategies of resource-driven economies. This chapter argues that three emerging trends are challenging this discourse and there is now a need to reconceptualize our understanding of resource peripheries. These trends are changes in the resource super-cycle; the increasing exposure of the periphery to environmental change; and growing expectations of extractive industry-led development. These new trends illustrate the ways in which resource peripheries are simultaneously enmeshed in the global economy and well as spaces of distinct vulnerabilities and opportunities.

Keywords: resources, development, periphery, economy, resource curse
