Civil society actors fighting for better resource governance must engage with reformers in government and business and speak “truth to power” with those parties hampering progress, NRGI president and CEO Daniel Kaufmann tells RAW Talks.
It has been notoriously difficult for citizens in resource-rich countries to lay hands on extractive industry contracts and licenses between their governments and private sector extractive companies. But that seems to be changing.
NRGI president and CEO Daniel Kaufmann delivered the keynote presentation at “Transparencia: Open Data and Anticorruption in Latin America,” an April 4 symposium at Harvard University. Kaufmann offered a framework to rethink and redefine the conventional view of corruption. Showing global evidence, he addressed various governance dimensions that matter and their impact on growth and development.
