Summary
The resurgent economic and geopolitical importance of Africa is evidenced by the growing investment by China, India, the United States, Brazil, and other countries in the continent's various natural resources sectors, such as oil, biofuels, forestry, fisheries, and minerals. This book provides an in-depth analysis of the governance of natural resources in Africa and new insights for readers as they navigate the burgeoning research on global governance initiatives and regional and national strategies. Moreover, by carefully examining both theoretical and policy-related debates (and drawing upon public opinion data in countries such as Angola and South Sudan), the book makes important connections between theory and practice surrounding natural resource sectors. Consequently, it offers scholars, graduate students, policy-makers, think tank researchers, and media with a comprehensive and authoritative examination of the current research being conducted on the governance of natural resources in Africa.--
