sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

In the third post of the GOXI mini series, Rachel Davis cautions: "relationships with local communities cannot be put on hold while prices recover." Read more.

And in the fourth post, Herbert M'cleod, Nicolas Maennling, and Lisa Sachs show that lower prices may be providing "incentives, pressures and opportunities" for reforms for better governance in resource-rich countries.


Also on GOXI this week, Eric Joyce praises the government of the Republic of Congo for its commitment to the EITI.

For a limited only, you can read Daniel Gilbert's link to a piece on "genuine CSR," with examples from Botswana, Brazil, Burkina Faso, Cambodia, Chile, and South Africa.

And Oxfam pledges to to speak out and defend the political spaces being claimed by women and men like Berta Cáceres and Nelson García.

These and more jobsblogsphotosvideos, and discussions.

Featured member - Roy Maconachie

Roy Maconachie's research  in Sub-Saharan Africa explores the social, political and economic aspects of natural resource management, and their relationships to wider societal change. His most recent work has been concerned with the politics around natural resource management in West Africa, with a particular focus on the extractive industries, livelihood change and social conflict. His disciplinary background is in human geography, but his work has largely been interdisciplinary in its approach, drawing principally upon anthropology and politics/political economy.

In pursuing his research, Dr. Maconachie has developed strong international links with a wide range of institutions in Africa, including Fourah Bay College (Sierra Leone), Bayero University Kano (Nigerria*) and Makerere University (Uganda). Before joining the International Development Group at the University of Bath, he was a post-doctoral fellow at IDPM, University of Manchester (2007-2009) and IDS Sussex (2005-2007).
