What we do
TAX JUSTICE AND ILLICIT FINANCIAL FLOWS
Illicit Financial Flows (IFFs) have drawn increasing attention in the Southern African region. The biggest culprits identified are multinational entities (MNEs) according to several reports by the African Union (AU), United Nations (UN) and the International Monetary Fund (IMF), with those in the extractive sector featuring prominently.
THE SOUTHERN AFRICA TAX AND GOVERNANCE NETWORK (SATGN)
In the face of all the tax and governance injustices, the region has not had a social movement to resist and revolt against this. CSOs and citizens alike, have not been able to successfully come up with organic strategies to help curb IFFs and pressure governments to resist neo-imperialism in the form of foreign investment.
Extractives Industries and the Alternative Mining Indaba
EJN’s work on Extractive Industries began in 2010. Much of this work included building a strong movement of faith leaders and organizations demanding to have a voice in the mining sector and the protection of their socio-economic interests and rights, especially from multi-national corporations (MNCs) operating mines in their areas.
