dc.description.abstractCopper is among the most heavily traded commodities world-wide. The trade volume of copper in combination with the environmental impact of the mining industry has drawn increased attention to the processing and trade of copper and other primary metals. Moreover, copper is a metal that is essential to the energy transition as a component of renewable technologies. To prevent further climate related change, it is important to understand the movement of copper around the globe. This body of research and the existing literature demonstrate that copper trade flows range in complexity from regional partnerships to global regimes. The broad range of complexity contributes to many different narratives that describe the flow of copper ore and concentrate, which further complicates explaining the link between trade flows and environmental impacts.
