NEITI report/discussion coming up at Chatham House

Friday 20 November 2009 
11.30 to 12.30pm

Nigeria's Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative: Just a Glorious Audit? 

Nicholas Shaxson, Associate Fellow, Chatham House

Discussant: Uche Igwe, Civil Society Liaison Officer, NEITI 

The ambitious Nigeria Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative (NEITI) came to prominence in 2003 and was widely held up as a success, touted as the flagship programme of global EITI.

This event will launch the Chatham House study by nick Shaxson analysing the extent to which NEITI has achieved it goals and potential, and whether it deserves the reputation it garnered in its early years. The paper also questions the assumptions upon which the EITI process is built: that better transparency will lead to better governance and accountability, and these in turn will foster growth and reduce poverty.

In presenting his report, Mr. Shaxson will be joined by discussant Uche Igwe of NEITI. The report will be available to download from the Chatham House website on 19th November 2009.

We look foward to the NEITI audit discussion. I hope it would be documented for circulation.
