Wars of Plunder

Oxford University Press

This chapter presents several proposals for resource sectors to contribute to peacebuilding. It first discusses proposals relevant to resource exploitation management, focusing on the potential contributions of peacekeeping missions as well as the prevention of resource-related land conflicts and the promotion of domestic entrepreneurship and employment. It then deals with the management of resource revenues, the recovery of looted wealth, post-conflict resource contract renegotiations, direct revenue disbursement to the population, and the creation of special funds. It finally engages with resource governance more broadly, focusing on relevant international initiatives such as the Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI). Various policy options, their prioritization and timing are discussed.

Keywords:   peacekeeping, Extractive Industry Transparency Initiative (EITI), contract renegotiation
