sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI 

Since the GOXI Film Festival in 2011, more movies have been released related to extractive industries.  Perhaps this (northern hemisphere) summer will be the time for another discussion, so start looking out for extractives themes in your favorite movies. But before then, Thomas Lassourd shares various opinions on Black Panther and the natural resource curse

Meanwhile, in the real world, Stephen Yeboah discusses what mining reform in the Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) means for the rest of Africa. 

One reason for reform, Yeboah reports, is the weakness in corporate governance at Gécamines, DRC's state-owned mining company. In this post, the Natural Resource Governance Institute (NRGI) shares ideas for making State-Owned Enterprises accountable

Mukasiri Sibanda focuses on transparency, without which, he argues, "it is difficult for public to hold government and corporates to account on negotiating fair mining deals that optimises mining benefits for citizens." This, as he considers a $4.2 billion investment by Cyprus-based Karo Resources in Zimbabwe'...

And Jasmin Blessing reminds us that the three-part webinar series on human rights, environment and biodiversity continues this week.
