sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Have you recently discovered oil? Beware. Ross Harvey shares a paper on the interaction between political dynamics and windfall oil rents in four countries.

From one of those countries, Antipas Massawe shares a model mineral policy aimed at addressing some of the risks.

And Sofiane shares a measure of resource governance in Tunisia.

These and many more experiences on GOXI, including a video from SLEITI and pointers on conflict-sensitive business practices by Zahed Yousuf.
