Getting a Good Deal

Many resource-rich countries negotiate complex contracts to govern mining, oil, or gas projects. Despite the critical importance of these contracts in determining the risks and benefits of these projects, many developing country governments face disadvantages in the negotiation process. This can be because of asymmetric information or expertise, lack of preparedness, power imbalances, and other factors. This course examines the challenges governments face in negotiating strong contracts, and strategies that governments can use to address these challenges and increase the chances of negotiating a good deal.

This course is for:

Mid- to senior-level government officials, including those with decision making authority, who work in ministries and departments involved in policy design, implementation, and compliance; officials from state-owned enterprises; members of parliament; parliamentary staffers; and researchers

Civil society leaders with a track record of analysis, oversight, and policy advocacy around the governance of extractive industries

Academics and doctoral students undertaking applied research or teaching on the governance of natural resources

Professionals from development agencies, including consultancies, aid agencies, and international financial institutions

Representatives from extractive industry associations such as chambers of energy and minerals or country-level industry think tanks

Law students or those who wish to better their knowledge on how to examine, plan, and execute the negotiation process.
