Resource security risks in perspective : complexity and nuance / Bram Buijs and Henrike Sievers. The Hague : Clingendael International Energy Programme, November 2011, 42 p. (briefing paper)

This briefing paper has been based upon research undertaken in the context of the EU FP7 POLINARES project (

Access to resources has become an issue which has gained much political and public attention in recent years, as resource markets have become tighter. This paper is the second of a twin briefing paper on the debate surrounding security of energy and mineral resources. The first paper Critical thinking about critical minerals provided a critical analysis of the ‘critical minerals’ approach and identified several underlying fundamental concerns. This  paper elaborates on this analysis and is divided into the following four parts:

  • Part I: Assessing Major Risks and Debunking Some Misconceptions,
  • Part II: Access to Resources, Prices and Competitiveness,
  • Part III: Confidence in Global Markets – Entering a New Era?
  • Part IV: Thinking about Policy Responses to Resource Security Issues.
