Making Collective Governance Work – Lessons from the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative.
This Human Rights Watch report argues for incorporating human rights requirements more fully into the EITI Standard. It contends that fundamental freedoms need to be respected for the EITI to achieve its ultimate goal of strengthening governance in oil, gas and mining sectors. The report includes case studies from five countries [Azerbaijan, Indonesia, Myanmar, Ethiopia and Equatorial Guinea] and warns that in repressive environments, transparency can be little more than an empty gesture and even be counter-productive.
This is the final report from the evaluation of the EITI that was comissioned by the EITI Board and conducted October 2010 to May 2011 by Scanteam. Scanteam was chosen to undertake the evaluation following an open tender
The purpose and overall aim of this evaluation was to document, analyse and assess the relevance and effectiveness of the EITI, where EITI’s objectives are to strengthen transparency of natural resource revenues recognising that this “can reduce corruption, and that the revenue from extractive industries can transform economies, reduce poverty,

NGOs as innovators in extractive industry governance. Insights from the EITI process in Colombia and Peru
This paper explores NGO participation within the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), a multi-stakeholder governance arrangement focused on generating greater transparency in the governance of extractive industries, and in particular in fiscal arrangements around mining, oil and gas operations. Using the cases of Peru and Colombia, we examine what motivates NGO participation in EITI, how NGOs have pursued innovations within EITI, the extent to which they have succeeded in achieving their goals, and the factors limiting or shaping their achievements.
La présente étude, préparé par M. Michel Bissou, offre un outil complémentaire aux initiatives déjà en cours en matière d’évaluation de l’impact de la mise en œuvre de l’ITIE. Il s’est agi en effet, à travers le calcul d’Indices de conformité à la Norme ITIE (ou Indices ITIE), d’apprécier, d’une part le bilan et les enjeux des premières Validations sur la mise en œuvre de la Norme ITIE 2016 en Afrique Francophone, d’autre part, d’entrevoir les perspectives de la mise en œuvre de la Norme ITIE 2019.

Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives (MSIs) are voluntary partnerships between governments, civil society, and the private sector which seek to promote good governance by holding governments and corporations accountable to citizens. Although MSIs conduct a great deal of research on transparency and good governance and have produced volumes of reports – some of which are critical of governments – they tend to be known mainly to a few stakeholders and devotees. The public is largely unfamiliar with them. Consequently, the public does not believe that MSIs have achieved much real-world impact.
This report examines three prominent Multi-Stakeholder Initiatives (MSIs) – the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI) and Open Government Partnership (OGP) through the dual lenses of peer learning and peer pressure. The term “peers” implies a degree of equality between the participating parties. Peer review is defined as examinations that are systematic in their nature, of a state by another state(s), specifically designated institutions or a combination of the two. In MSIs, peer reviews are premised on mutual trust, non-confrontation,

This report examines four African states (Ghana, Liberia, Sierra Leone, and Tanzania), and their membership in three multi-stakeholder initiatives: the African Peer Review Mechanism (APRM), the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), and the Open Government Partnership (OGP).
