This advanced-level multi-stakeholder course, designed in partnership with NADEL-Center for Development and Cooperation at ETH Zürich, is open to professionals from government, civil society, parliaments, media, international development agencies and the private sector, as well as academics, researchers and analysts. The course is delivered in English.  

The advanced course equips participants with the knowledge and tools necessary to contribute to better governance and oversight of natural resources, particularly with respect to the energy transition and its impact on the extractives sector. The course provides a platform to further analyze the political economy of governance in resource-rich states and explore how it impacts domestic policy debates and practice.
