An “Arab Spring” in the Extractive Industries?
Jan 17, 2013
A three-part series for representatives from corporate, donor, civil society, and research organizations working in the extractive industries.
Part I: Transparency and Accountability
Moderator: Dr. A. Rani Parker, CEO, Business-Community Synergies
Dr. A. Rani Parker has been working in corporate-community engagement in the extractive industries for more than decade. She has led many in-depth qualitative assessments to increase companies' and communities' understanding of power relations, formal and informal authorities, social connectors and dividers. By providing a nuanced socio-economic picture, BCS helps to level the playing field for communities with little leverage and to build trust between communities and companies. The result is net benefits for both.
This discussion series addresses issues playing out in the extractive industries around the world: accountability and transparency, expectations of employment, and negotiating capacities.
