This advanced executive course is open to exceptional individuals from civil society, government, international organizations, and academia who already have a solid understanding of natural resource governance but seek to enhance their knowledge and skills in order to play a more prominent role in developing, monitoring/evaluating the mineral and petroleum sectors in their countries and across the globe.
This two-week SPP–RWI–NRC course, run at the School of Public Policy at the Central European University in Budapest, is designed to equip a pool of exceptional individuals from civil society, government, international organizations, and academia with the knowledge and tools necessary to help reverse the “resource curse.” Specifically, the course will examine the political economy of governance in resource-rich states and look into how it impacts policy debates and practice, both domestically as well as internationally.
The course will also offer practical lessons for policy improvement, based on best practices from across the globe, targeting individuals already engaged in the management and/or oversight of extractive industries.
