Call for Case Studies: Corruption in community development and CSR projects related to mining

Dr Michael Nest is undertaking research for the U4 Anti-Corruption Resource Centre in Norway on corruption in community development and corporate social responsibility projects related to mining.

The objective is to understand the risks for corruption around these projects, and to identify what mitigation strategies appear most promising.  The final report will be publicly available on the U4 website in late 2016.

Dr Nest is calling for case studies, which can be from any country.  All details can be made anonymous if necessary, e.g., country, location, mining company name, or community name.

Examples of such corruption include mining companies defrauding communities of their CSR entitlements, community leaders not releasing community funds to the community (but keeping it for themselves), or government officials embezzling community development funds.

Information about case studies can be submitted in English or French.

Information is requested by 15 July 2016.

To submit information, or if you have any questions about the project, please email Dr Nest at

As some correspondence might be required to clarify details of what actually occurred, a reliable contact/email address would be appreciated.
