The project examines the implications of initiatives that sought substantive transparency for democratic leadership, shared prosperity and energy security in Nigeria and globally. Grounded in the literature and conceptual approaches to the political economy of oil, and democratization and development, the research has identified prospects for innovative synergies between these different transparency initiatives to promote a more coherent regulatory framework and increased public access to information.
