ENP-postdoc Maria Tysiachniouk contributed to a theme issue on Oil company benefit sharing in the Russian North in the Russian Analytical Digest. The theme issue examines benefit-sharing agreements between oil companies and indigenous communities in the Russian North.
In her contribution Maria analyses the procedural and distributional equity of four different types of benefit sharing arrangements. She lays out four different types of benefit-sharing arrangements, pointing to the paternalism model in Nenets Autonomous Okrug, the corporate social responsibility model (CSR) in Khanti-Mansiiski Autonomous Okrug and the partnership model in Sakhalin Island. Her analysis demonstrates that indigenous communities are not benefitting equally from oil and gas extraction.
