sharing in governance of extractive industries
GIZ’s Sector Project Sustainable Economic Development has published a new discussion paper titled “The Political Economy of Extractive Resources”, which analyses power structures, the web of interests and resulting incentive structures in resource-rich countries. The study applies new theories of political economy and presents case studies.
The realistic analysis provides a political economy framework to support the work of development practitioners. It discusses the dynamics likely to be encountered when implementing approaches of technical cooperation in resource-rich countries. The study can therefore serve as background document for the preparation of political economic analyses and provides appropriate methods for such analyses. In addition, the discussion paper gives suggestions how interventions of development cooperation can be targeted and pitfalls avoided, whilst taking into account the complex political economic framework. The study is available online: http://star-www.giz.de/starweb/giz/pub/servlet.starweb?path=giz/pub....
