Nigeria's Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative: Just a Glorious Audit?

This report written by Nicholas Shaxson looks at Nigeria's implementation of the EITI. The author aims to answer whether NEITI has helped improve transparency, accountability and governance in Nigeria and whether these efforts have had an impact on development in the country. Shaxson argues that NEITI may have been a useful entry point into a difficult area, and that more future research will be required to determine its true impact.
