"Simon Taylor is the co-founder and director of Global Witness, and launched Global Witness’ oil and corruption campaign in 1999. This work began the global call for transparency and accountability for the oil, gas and mining sectors, around the relationship between extractive industry companies and the people who live in resource-rich countries – people who are, more often than not, desperately poor. Exposing corruption in these sectors led to Global Witness’ conception of the Publish What You Pay (PWYP) Campaign, which Simon co-launched in 2002 with other NGOs."
