EITI 'supporting states' - support means money, not presumed moral superiority

Yesterday, at the first day of the EITI Board's 2-day meeting in Oslo, there was a stand-out moment. It wasn't the worthy discussion of the validation schedule, or the meticulously prepared papers, or the sensible outreach work. It wasn't even the intelligent introduction to the new EITI beta website, which looks set to become a very handy resource for everyone. The stand-out moment came while the secretariat was patiently explaining the…See More

UK EITI - useful lessons for civil society?

We have the latest meeting of the UK EITI multi-stakeholder group tomorrow (Tuesday) and this comes just as we've issued our first year report. Elsewhere on Goxi, Miles Litvinoff of Publish What You Pay provides a super, detailed description of the administrative process so far. It’s worth flagging here a few quick lessons in respect of civil society activity on the MSG. First, Extractive Industries Civil Society (EICS) holds 2…See More

The EITI, civil society and letting developing states speak for themselves

The EITI Conference in Lima was a decent success for a number of reasons - perhaps the most striking was the enthusiastic participation of developing countries with very different profiles. The Phillipines was very proud of its Extractives portal; Nigeria sent two ministers who spoke passionately of the new Buhari administration's commitment to transparency and anti-corruption; the Azerbaijan national Oil Fund manager - already a…See More

Any thoughts on the 'north' knowing what's best for the 'south'?
