Information Centre for the Extractives Sector

Information Centre for the Extractives Sector

ICES is a DFID supported online information platform on extractives in Kenya, is now hosted by the Strathmore Extractives Industry Centre (“SEIC”), based at Strathmore University. SEIC is an autonomous research centre based at the Strathmore University School of Law, for advanced multi-disciplinary university-stakeholder research into the social science areas of oil, gas and mining issues. SEIC seeks to bridge theory and practice in Kenya’s (and the broader East Africa region) extractive sector and support constructive dialogue and collaboration among companies, relevant agencies of government, civil society, and local communities through its key activity of research. Our aim is that research-led co-operation among these varied stakeholders will lead to knowledge promotion of the industry and constructive dialogue on the motivations and objectives of the various economic forces, agents and policy makers that operate in or influence the performance of the extractive sector. It is anticipated that the move will position ICES to be even more effective in providing sector stakeholders with relevant and insightful news and information products in the future.
