Written by Dirk Willem te Velde

This paper aims to provide some theoretical foundation to the emerging concept of trisector partnerships for social management in the extractive industries. It considers the partnership model in the context of the costs and benefits of Foreign Direct Investment. It discusses whether a partnership can address market failures related to information needs in the market for skills and technology, and whether it can safeguard acceptable social outcomes.
