International Anti-Corruption Norms

This chapter examines the Extractive Industries Transparency Initiative, which emerged in 2003 to tackle the corruption, poverty, and conflict associated with natural resource wealth. EITI has created and successively revised a set of international norms on revenue transparency, which take the form of the EITI Standard. These non-binding revenue transparency norms have not only been implemented by participating States, but they have also influenced the legal systems of non-participating States, by virtue of the 2013 European Union Transparency and Accounting Directives. EITI’s status as a multi-stakeholder initiative has greatly enhanced its inclusiveness, as States as well as private sector entities and civil society organizations participate in the Initiative. But EITI’s inclusiveness has also diminished the effectiveness of the Standard. The Standard’s narrow focus on revenue transparency, as opposed to the transparency of contracts and expenditures, may limit its ability to reduce the grand corruption typically associated with the extractive industries.
