Chile Transparente, the Chilean Chapter of Transparency International, is a non-profit private corporation. Its mission is to make a substantive contribution to the fight against corruption and misconduct in Chile, promoting the creation of a culture of integrity and transparency. Its projects focus on promoting the values of transparency and integrity, providing tools and practical guides to improve levels of integrity and citizen access to information.
Chile Transparente is part of the first cohort of 20 Transparency International Chapters involved in TI’s global programme to improve transparency in the process of awarding mining permits.
This global programme seeks to improve transparency and accountability in the extractive industries, focusing specifically on the very first link in the mining value chain: the decisions by government to grant mining or exploration permits and licenses and negotiate contracts.
Transparency International’s objectives with this risk assessment are to identify systemic, regulatory and institutional vulnerabilities in the awarding of licenses, permits and contracts related to the mining sector and to determine the corruption risks created by these vulnerabilities. This report presents the main findings of the study and the results of the risk assessment.
