Limited Partnership: Business, Government, Civil Society (NGOs) and the Public in the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI)
This article examines the context and impact of the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI). I hyppothesize that EITI is not as effective as it could be because the governments, firms, and NGOs involved in EITI have very different visions of EITI. In EITI, firms are supposed to publish what they pay to extract resources, governments publish what they earn, and a multistakeholder group monitors and attempts to see if these figures can be reconciled. The group is supposed to push for the government to find this balance. Some governments have not allowed civil society to fully participate in the EITI process. In that regard it is a limited partnership. Civil society,as representatives of the public, can not act as an anticorruption counterweight.
