As part of Open Society Foundation for South Africa’s portfolio on ‘Extractives Sector Transparency and Accountability’, which is located within the Research and Advocacy Unit, the third edition of our publication In Good Company? focuses on understanding the current benefit-sharing system in South Africa’s mining industry and navigates opportunities for equitable sharing of revenues with affected communities. The articles cover topics such as the right of communities to have their voices heard in the policy-making process, alternative development options for rural communities, mining taxation, an assessment of the royalties system, transparent revenue management, distributive struggles in rural communities relating to mining revenues, the right of communities to say no to mining, as well as revenue management strategies for ensuring local economic development in mining communities.
