New Battles in Africa – Oil Revenue Management as a Source of Intrastate Conflicts

Džuverović Nemanja (Faculty of Political Science, University of Belgrade), nemanja. dzuverovic@fpn.bg.ac.rs

The paper uses Galtung’s conflict (ABC) triangle model that explains creation of conflict formations and Collier and Hoeffler concept of “greed and grievance”, which analyzes the main reasons for outbreaks of civil wars in order to demonstrate how the unequal distribution of oil revenues in African countries and social divisions created in this way may induce violent intrastate conflicts. A theoretical framework is then applied on the case study of Sudan where conditions above mention are widely present and where conflict may occur in the near future.
