The study documents the debates, issues of accountability, and different interpretations of corporate social responsibility (CSR) between NGOs representing indigenous rights and a mining corporation. The debates focus on environmental impact assessments, indigenous rights to land. Theses exchanges illustrate the socio-political, as well as economic positioning of these actors. Their outcomes reflect different degrees of power that these actors hold in such contexts. This dialogue is a lens into the more complex and contentious entanglements that emerge with CSR as a mode of governance
