sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

What's the difference between "we will" and "we aim to"? In this post on responsible gold mining principles, Gwendolyn Wellman wonders why companies use softer language when it comes to community issues.

Finding the Missing Millions, a new handbook from Global Witness and Resources for Development Consulting features 10 different methods for using data from oil, gas and mining projects to check whether companies are paying the right amount to governments.

"Challenging false perspectives in mining" is the theme for the  2018 workshop on Harnessing the Extractive Industries for Development in sub-Saharan Africa 2018 (EX4DEV18). The call for papers is now open. 

Degol Hailu and Admas Shiferaw write on manufacturing challenges in resource-rich countries.

And Lynda Lawson shares her piece in The Conversation about how sapphires change lives.
