Chapter "Beyond governments"

Jonas Moberg and Eddie Rich (International Secretariat) wrote a chapter titled "Beyond governments: Lessons on multi-stakeholder governance from the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI)" to the book edited by Mark Pieth.
The recognition that some complex governance challenges are best managed through collective approaches is fundamental to the EITI. The EITI is based on the proposition that governments must increase their transparency and demands the same openness from all companies in the oil, gas, and mining sectors. This chapter briefly explores what lessons can be drawn on what works, why it works, how it works, and, perhaps more pertinently, where this approach does not work.
