In order to distinguish essays and pre-prints from academic theses, we have a separate category. These are often much longer text based documents than a paper.
This thesis explores how citizens engage with the Environmental Impact Assessment (EIA) process to influence decision making outcomes for major projects such as coal mines. A detailed case study is presented of the community of Bulga, exploring their experiences in trying to prevent the expansion of the Mt Thorley-Warkworth coal mine expansion in the Upper Hunter Valley, New South Wales, Australia.
