The EITI Blog opened in 2008 and EITI stakeholders and staff have contributed regularly with perspectives on the EITI as well as wider transparency issues. The quality has been high, and it has initiated discussions and has become a repository of different views on important topics. We have generally been staying away from chatting contributions about everyday work life at the EITI, and we intend to keep it this way.
During the coming weeks and the holidays here in Norway we will however make an exception and give the blog over to the staff here at the EITI Secretariat. Colleagues from around the office will be contributing. Hopefully our readers will get to know the people here in our yellow-painted office in Oslo and will gain a better understanding of what we do.
If you have any questions or have any suggestions for what we should cover, please contact Anders Kråkenes (firstname.lastname@example.org). I hope you will find it enjoyable and interesting. Towards the end, we will take stock and share some of the comments and feedback we have received from you.
