“Protecting the Cornerstone” report on Multi-Stakeholder Governance in EITI Published

Today MSI Integrity released a landmark report on the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (EITI), assessing whether national multi-stakeholder groups–the driving force in EITI–are operated and governed effectively. The report, “Protecting the Cornerstone,” comes at a timely moment for EITI as countries prepare for validation under the EITI Standard in 2015.

Follow this link to learn more about the report, and to download the full report, a brief summary report, or the guidance notes for developing robust multi-stakeholder group internal governance, or regarding good practice for civil society participation in the EITI. The summary report and both guidance notes are available in English, French, and Spanish.

A panel discussion has been organized by Publish What You Pay International and Oxfam America for this evening (5:30pm – 7:30pm) in Washington, DC, to discuss the findings and recommendations in Protecting the Cornerstone and to consider the challenges and opportunities for multi-stakeholder governance in EITI. RSVP for the February 12 event here.

Other events to discuss the report are being organized around the world, and we encourage anyone interested in holding a discussion on the report to contact us as we would be happy to see how we can assist or be involved.
