Abstract

The present article evaluates how mining enterprises rely on monitoring as a political tool in socio-environmental confl ict areas. It analyzes the case of
a watershed affected by stripped gold mining operations in Cajamarca, Peru. The essay differentiates the different stages of the monitoring process to
determine how it becomes a tool that promotes the legitimizing discourse of mining interests. On the other hand a critical examination of the environmental
monitoring processes may support civic political actions that confront the entrenched power of the extractive enterprises.
