sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

With about 1200 subsidiaries in 80 countries, speaking of the company commonly known as BP is not that simple. Qualifications such as mother company, second tier, and other legal embodiments become useful. Anton Rühling shares the motivation for a partnership between OpenOil and OpenCorporates to map out the global structure and subsidiary hierarchy of BP plc.

This is all very useful information for journalists, and Seibik Bugri reports from an extractive industries workshop in Tanzania for journalists by courtesy of IFEJ, GIZ, and SECO.

From Trinidad and Tobago, Victor Hart shares the country's EITI report.

Dr. Akanimo Odon shares two posts on local content.

Kady Sequin announces a new three-year research project on women’s economic roles in artisanal and small-scale mining in the Democratic Republic of the Congo, Rwanda, and Uganda.

Angela Jorns shares Babar Turay's account on living in the shadows of Ebola.

And remember to submit your #Trilliondollarquestion for the EITI in Asia.
