Dissertation project

"Politics of Oil in Uganda: Assessment of Multi-stakeholder Practices in Resource-Governance".

Despite the rampant Afro-pessimism with extractive resources, Uganda is poised to join Africa’s leading players in the oil industry. The project is based on the unfolding events in the development of the country’s oil sector, and what implications these events are likely to have on multi-scalar resource politics. With the central question: how are the preparations towards oil exploitation shaping multi-stakeholder practices in Uganda, and what implications do these practices have to future conduct of governance at regional, national and subnational levels? The study is theoretically embedded in Foucault’s philosophy of governmentality and its peculiar ways of conceptualizing government, power, territory, space and the state. It explores the structuring, institutionalisation and functionalisation of oil into Uganda’s political economy; and how the interactions therein inform the resource vis-à-vis politics debate; contributing to the corpus of governmentality studies, with focus on the prevailing and unfolding mentalities of resource-governance in the country.
