Featured Member - Alan Wolfe

Alan Wolfe is co-convener of Transparency International Australia's regional committee in Perth, Western Australia and helps organize quarterly events on integrity issues relevant to the unique political-economy of Western Australia and the businesses located there. With significant support from businesses, government, civil society and universities, it is hoped the discussions will help improve integrity outcomes both domestically and abroad, particularly regarding extractives issues. 

Currently, Alan is consulting to Transparency International Australia on a proposed program on Mining & Corruption. Commencing with a research phase in mid-2014, the program will map corruption risks, analyze stakeholders and produce a gap analysis at both a global level and domestically in 7 countries. Full implementation of the program is scheduled for 2015 and by reducing corruption risks, would seek to increase the possibilities of mining to contributing to development.
