This article seeks to explore the role of the mining sector in peace building, conflict prevention and community development in Ghana. After thoroughly reviewing secondary data, including articles, books, journals, newspapers, etc., via critical document review and qualitative research approaches the research found that, there is no legal document on CSR in Ghana, yet mining companies in a free will, have executed CSR programs laying down for peace, security and development in the country. More so, this article provides a theoretical support for the Integrative theory of CSR on the basis that, the socio-economic, political, cultural and environmental needs of communities should be integrated into a corporate business objective for peace and security. Therefore, the article provides information on the need for a holistic and collaborative approach between civil society groups and government agencies in Ghana to work out for a comprehensive CSR policy backed by law.
