sharing in governance of extractive industries

A weekly digest of activity on GOXI

Interest rates, civil wars, community agitation, falling prices, etc, etc...Is that mine worth the trouble? Jodi Liss gives an overview in this short video. 

Here's another question without easy answers: How should countries strike a balance between building the capacity of domestic players in the oil industry and avoiding corruption and cronyism? This post by Seibik Bugri and Antipas Massawe's response to it illustrate this point. What are your thoughts?

Twenty years ago, Azerbaijan had to consider building domestic capacity as it entered the "contract of the century" with 11 oil companies. But have expectations been met? Farid Guliyev asks.

Mining in Malawi reports on what happened when the country's President Mutharika met with George Soros and other investors in America.

And Lars Benson reports on practical steps that smaller companies can take to implement a robust anti-corruption compliance programme, with a focus on Kenya.
