"Kari - Very interesting reflections. I'm particularly drawn to the last part of your piece, about the "middle class." Sometimes one wonders if what we have here is rather a "middling class""

But despite the visibility, there are still a lot of questions about how to translate the 12 precepts of natural resource development good practice into context-specific policy reform. A new Briefing Note tries to address some of those questions by highlighting…See More

Oxford Policy Management’s strong reputation for executing wide scale household surveys in sub-Saharan Africa and in South Asia is increasingly being applied to OPM’s extractive industries work, where policy discussions surrounding natural resource exploitation all too often take place using very ‘macro’ indicators for success – such as exploring how governments can secure the largest segment possible of tax revenues.

Kari:

I wish you can re-orient your research study, in consultation with your faculty advisor, to consider the natural resource curse as a product of the political economy. The legal perspective for why in Africa, natural resources are a curse is a function of political economy while the social pesrpective is an after-the-fact issue. Consider the cases of Nigeria and Norway or Botswana (diamonds) and Sierra Leone.

Good luck in your studies.
