sharing in governance of extractive industries


A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

A lawyer, an economist, and a development theorist fly into the Republic of Petronia soon after it discovers oil. Expectations are high, and so is anxiety. What happens next depends on you. Play the game.

But how does oil revenues affect the occurrence and course of internal armed conflicts in contexts of political decentralisation? With a comparative case study of Colombian municipalities, Juan David Gutiérrez tackled this question through his PhD work and shares his conclusions.

The Canadian Institute for Resource Development (CIRDI) focuses on conflict in mining operations and the role of host government.

While Robert Pitman looks at the role of companies in making 2019 a big year in contract transparency.

Levin Sources announces an initiative to establish a commercially viable, conflict-free supply chain of Artisanal and Small-scale Mining (ASM) gold in partnership with the United States Agency for International Development (USAID), Global Communities, Fair Congo, and IMPACT.

And Mukasiri Sibanda shares ideas for using diamonds to champion the fight against inequality in Zimbabwe.

While CIRDI too shares ideas for realizing the potential of mining community benefits in Ghana.

These and more jobs, blogs, photos, videos, and discussions on GOXI.
