On 3 December, Sabna Mohamed Abbass Ali will defend her thesis 'Extractive industries and development: An investigation into the resource curse impact on happiness, growth, export diversification, and institutions'
In her study, she investigates the underperformance of the majority of resource-rich countries.
In four articles based on research in Sudan and South Sudan Sabna Ali probes into a new perspective on the 'resource curse', looking respectively at happiness and the resource curse; post-succession Sudan and South Sudan; oil, export diversification and economic growth in Sudan; and an evaluation of the impact of oil reserve loss on Sudan's growth.
