Roskill has released a briefing paper on the EU ad-hoc working group on defining critical raw materials’ recent report. This is the first report released by the working group since the original study in 2010. According to Roskill: ‘The new report uses the same quantitative methodology as the original study, which classifies materials as “critical” through analysis of two key factors: economic importance and supply risk.’ In the briefing paper, Roskill offers an overview of the report findings and quantitative methodology. It also outlines the advantages of analysing factors not covered by the EU study with the aim of establishing ‘a more nuanced understanding of supply risk’.
The paper by Roskill can be found here.
