Beschreibung

The book provides an in-depth analysis of the governance of Africa's natural resource sectors (oil, biofuels, forestry, fisheries, minerals) and new insights for readers as they navigate the burgeoning research on global governance initiatives and regional/national strategies that seek to improve the governance of the continent's natural resources.

'New Approaches to the Governance of Natural Resources: Insights from Africa is refreshingly brilliant, engaging but most importantly innovative. The collection of chapters in this edited volume offers a nuanced analysis that extends our understanding of the complexity of natural resources governance in Africa. This book is a must read for everyone interested in natural resources governance in Africa.' - Uwafiokun Idemudia, York University, Canada

'Grant, Compaoré, and Mitchell have assembled a solid group of scholars who furnish critical perspectives on natural resource governance in Africa. The volume makes important contributions to debates that are only beginning.' - Gilbert M. Khadiagala, University of the Witwatersrand, South Africa
