This panel invites reflections on the politics of governing oil and gas resources for economic and social development.

Long abstract:

This panel will examine the state's role in petroleum management and 'petro-development' as well as the political context in which international organisations, state institutions, and other stakeholders participate in the governance of the oil and gas industry in order to influence the distribution of rents and other developmental outcomes such as local linkages.
