Who gets the right to mine, and how?
Over 20 Transparency International Chapters, from some of the world’s most resource-rich countries, have come together to shine a light on how mining deals are made.
By focusing our spotlight on the start of the value chain we are working to prevent corruption before ground is even broken.
We are collaborating with an ever-growing network of global anti-corruption initiatives. We are working with governments, companies and communities who want to fix the flaws in the way mining permits are granted, flaws that leave the whole mining operation vulnerable to corruption.
Together, we are building coalitions against corruption, because we need to work together to create a fairer process for all.
Through workshops, Transparency International Cambodia is equipping women with information and skills to stand up for their rights.
South Africa’s Corruption Watch is designing materials for women to encourage and enable them to contribute to discussions about mining.
Transparency International Kenya and Kenya’s Law Society join forces to train women about their rights around mining.
Beneficial Ownership Guide
This guide is for CSOs wanting to understand and win support for beneficial ownership and integrity screening in their country. It provides detailed information and guides users to develop and present convincing, evidence-based recommendations.
Our research examines where, how and under what conditions corruption occurs when mining permits are granted.
Our Global Report is filled with case studies from around the world, and the MACRA Tool details how users can explore corruption loopholes in their own countries. These publications are available in English, French and Spanish.
