Session 5: Leveraging better development from natural resources: beyond the resource curse


This final session will take stock of the learning from the previous four sessions and seeks to answer the question posed at the start of the course – does China change the prospects for Africa’s development? You will start by reviewing the key findings of what you have studied so far before hearing the opinions of oil experts about their analysis of oil and development. Finally, there is an interactive game in which you have the chance to make decisions around managing Africa’s oil.
