Mining, Lobbying And Efficient Environmental Policy - MILO

MILO is a project within the Marie Curie European Individual Fellowships (IF) scheme of the Horizon 2020 research and innovation framework programme. The project is developed by Dr. Pauli Lappi, under the direct scientific supervision of Prof. Carlo Carraro.

Natural resources including raw materials are important for the European Union since they are a part of the base of the economy and simultaneously a large pollution and waste source. Sustainable development of the mining sector extracting the raw materials calls for an economic analysis of environmental policy, which is the central theme of the MILO-project.

The objective of the project is to investigate the optimal environmental policy of the mining sector with a special emphasis on mining specific features and the choice of policy instruments under lobbying.
Through its research results obtained using dynamic optimization methods, game theory and an array of dissemination and communication efforts, the project will help to improve the currently applied policies in Europe. In addition to policy advice, the project will result in new insights on the formation of lobby groups and policy instruments by combining two game theoretical approaches, namely, the common agency framework and coalition theory
