Sudan conflict with natural resource

The assignment-Please read carefully You will write a paper about how natural resources have affected state-society relations in a country of your choice. The final paper should be 1,250-1,750 words and will require some library research. You can select any country in the world. Successful papers will use concepts and ideas that are covered in this course and put them in dialogue with your case study. Librarians are your very best friends. Contact the ISS librarian for help in thinking this through. This assignment will be scaffolded in the following way. Your proposal should also include a short list of at least three scholarly works that you plan to use for the paper. The purpose of this exercise is to move from research topic to research question, through thinking, writing, and instructor feedback. A topic can be “oil in Latin America” but that is so broad that it will not necessarily lead to a good paper. The paper should be organized like many of the scholarly works we read. That is, like our authors, you will pick an interesting puzzle and formulate a “why” question that addresses that puzzle. For example, Robert Williams ask a fascinating question about Central America: Why did countries with similar kinds of resources and connection to global markets develop political regimes as different as peaceful, democratic Costa Rica and dictatorial Guatemala? You can ask similar questions. For example: why does the resource curse, a problem for so many parts of the world, not afflict Norway? Or something like: Why would Mexico nationalize its oil wealth in the early twentieth century and then move to privatize it in the twenty-first? A “puzzle” is a way of saying “Why did this happen here, and not there, now and not then?” A puzzle helps you pose important questions and obliges you to generate an explanation. Remember: a puzzle is also a kind of trick of the trade: it is something you create. It is a way of posing a good research question.

Sudan is a large country that is located in the continent of Africa .Sudan conflict with natural resource is threating the lives of over 10 million people, natural resource also include water, minerals, oil and also include forests. I will address a portion of many problems Sudan face. I will address natural resources that has cause violent conflict. This struggle has caused many innocent civilians to suffer. • If the oil, water and land are not being managed by the leaders, Sudan could face more violent in the future. • Sudan political or ethnic natural resource issue. • Violent conflict north and south will continue to happen as long as the leaders in Sudan is having a hard time managing petroleum resources. • Resource conflicts have left Sudanese communities without access to water and land. Sudan financially development relies on benefits from resource from oil. • How a natural resources such as water ,land, forests gold • What changes will the government make to help the citizens Teacher comments : Well laid-out outline. The main place to focus for improvement is to continue to work at coming up with a “Why” question (see Country Paper Guidelines). What is puzzling about your research topic? In what ways does the story you are telling defy what might have been expected?
