Resource extractive conflicts are typically attributed to environmental or economic concerns. In this article I argue, however, that conflicts in Andean Latin America are also shown to incorporate social concerns born from structural shifts inherent in resource extraction that alter land use, labor, and community relations. I also seek to bring to the fore the actual social impacts of resource extraction to argue that these factors play a larger role in shaping individual, community, and even political consciousness. An examination of this sort allows for a more comprehensive understanding of extractive conflicts and can further efforts to foster inclusive collaboration between governments, companies, and communities by exposing the linkages between resource extraction and the community.
