Anthony's research focuses on how mining impacts communities, with a particular interest in the Pacific region.

Dr Anthony Kung is a Senior Research Fellow at the Centre for Social Responsibility in Mining (CSRM). Anthony specialises in social impact and risk assessments for large scale resource development projects, as well as monitoring and evaluation for international development programs. He undertook social studies for extractives projects in Australia (Telfer, Tanami), PNG (Wafi-Golpu, PNG LNG, P’nyang), and Fiji (Waisoi) and recently conducted a review of the Cook Islands draft legislation on seabed mining.

Anthony's PhD was undertaken at the University of Queensland / the International Water Centre. His thesis examined environmental report cards, and the potential for report cards to be produced collaboratively, in a way that would promote constructive stakeholder relationships. Anthony's undergraduate backgrounds were in Law and Environmental Engineering. Prior to joining CSRM, Anthony was an Associate with Coffey International, and before that a research assistant at the Centre for Resources, Energy and Environmental Law. Anthony has held a number of teaching roles, recently at the UQ School of Law and the International WaterCentre.
