Recursos naturales y desarrollo en el Chad: ¿maldición de los recursos o inserción periférica?
The significant increase in foreign investment in the African extractive sector in the last decade has refuelled the debate on the effects on development of the rents generated in this sector. From the resource curse theory, it is argued that the negative effects on development of these rents have to do basically with internal disfunctions, getting around the elements and external actors that shape and influence these internal features. The case of Chad, an oil-producing country since 2003 with the support of the World Bank, is presented and analysed in this article, and we reach the conclusion that the analysis of the peripherical insertion of the country is crucial to understand the disfunctions generated by oil rent.
