Социалният лиценз за работа е подход, който има потенциал да трансформира минерално-суровинния отрасъл. Значението му все повече нараства, тъй като целта му е да намали всички рискове по време на жизнения цикъл на минния проект. През последните две десетилетия изследванията в областта на социалния лиценз за работа навлизат значително, налагайки нови подходи, модели и теоретично развитие. Настоящата публикация има за цел да изясни същността на термина, анализирайки развитието му през годините. Проучена е детайлно научната литература в областта, като в България тя е оскъдна, което отваря широко поле за работа у нас, особено в практически аспект. Направени са разграничения какво точно представлява и какво не социалния лиценз за работа, индикаторите, според етапа на лиценза в момента, както и стъпките за неговото придобиване. Маркирани са различните мрежови общности и техните особености.
