Reviews and discusses some of the new suggestions made for governing the “resource curse” of the Gulf of Guinea region successfully. Provides a broader context and suggests additional innovative approaches at the international, regional and domestic level. Beyond the policy level, takes a look at the political economy of solving the resource curse. Presents some factors which together help to explain why some countries affected by the resource curse have successfully adopted reforms while most have not. Understanding this better might take us a step closer to ensuring that, eventually, oil and gas wealth is governed in a way that benefits the citizens of the countries concerned and brings about a truly democratic Gulf of Guinea region.
