Abstract:

With mineral resources valued at almost $1 trillion, the Philippines ranks fifth most mineral-rich country in the world, third in terms of gold reserves, fourth in copper, fifth in nickel, and sixth in chromite. The current political discourse highlights the vast reserves of natural resources, positioning the Philippines to be one of the crucial suppliers of key minerals, allowing accumulation and growth to continue on various scales. However, as some have put it recently, neoliberal mineral governance is intertwined with a modernity project that maintains oligarchical rule embedded in social inequality and economic asymmetry.

The paper compares historical enclosures and the newer neoliberal enclosures within a world-economy or a world-ecology. Following those who have argued three triads of capitalism are capital accumulation, the production of nature, and the ‘class’ struggle, the key argument of the paper is that enclosures during both periods reflect three key moments. First, capital accumulation is predicated on the shifting political economy and national ‘imaginaries’ that necessitate the state to become predatory. In order for enclosures to begin, a sustainable demand from the global context and the development of politics within the state are necessary. Equally important is the birth of, and power by, particular kinds of colonial, imperial, or national ‘imaginaries,’ and whether the imaginaries would reflect regimes supportive of the new kinds of enclosures.
