sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

With lessons from Indonesia, Publish What You Pay staff in the Republic of Congo have called on the authorities to launch their own investigations into a Swiss NGO's claim that Gunvor, one of the world’s biggest oil traders, made secret payment... for access to the country’s assets.

But the acquisition of Democratic Republic of Congo (DRC) mining assets was done in a jurisdiction outside of the DRC, Perrine Toledano recalls one infamous case as she announces CCSI and ISLP's practical guidance for countries that would decide to tax capital gains arising from indirect transferof the underlying assets situated in host countries. 

And we recommend you read part two of an interview with Claudia Ituarte-LIma on Biodiversity and Human Rights. 

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