"Terribly interesting piece. Very useful to think about how skills can match industry demand. Thanks, Stephen. One quick Q - if the high productivity per worker in oil/gas extends from the very high capital costs, is there necessarily any link…"

UK EITI MSG - working to become less male, less white, less dominated by big corporate NGO interests: simply fairer

Posted on October 29, 2017 at 16:30 0 Comments

There's a dispute at the UK EITI multi-stakeholder group. The group is supposed to include fair representation of UK civil society. Publish What You Pay (PWYP) has, however, to date nominated as substantive members (or alternates) only white men in paid appointments at London-based international NGOs. Most of these NGOs, of course, have no community engagement in the UK at all.

Some of us decided that this was outrageous. Particularly in view of the high UK African interest in…


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

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…
